Damsels, Stones and a Streamer with Larry Prowse

The library was jammed to capacity tonight to learn to tie three excellent fly patterns with our guest tier, Larry Prowse. Larry brought along a very cool floating damsel pattern that is a sure trout catcher. Larry also showed us how to tie an excellent streamer that included a furled tail using UV polar chenille and finally we took time to learn a quick and efficient way to tie in legs for a stonefly.

Three fantastic patterns Larry! Thanks!

Just a reminder that we are two weeks away from the all day Euro Nymphing Workshop with Phil Rowley! Drop Bob an e-mail to sign up! We still have some room!

Next week Tim Maley is our tier. I know Tim has a cool session planned for us!
