An Evening with Evan Ritchie
Evan Ritchie, one of the original members of our tying group, was our guest tyer tonight. Evan showed 30 keen fly tyers how to tie three very unique patterns. The first pattern was a polar bear streamer. If you were real lucky, you could also add some jungle cock eyes. Now that makes for a very cool pattern. Our second fly was an emerger pattern called Once and Away. This is an excellent emerger pattern that has a shell back of CDC feathers. The final fly was called The Hornberg Special Streamer. Now this cool pattern can be fished both as a dry fly and a streamer. Evan has had some success using it as a streamer at some of our local trout lakes. Thanks Evan for an educational evening of fly tying.
This is our last session until after Christmas. We get going again on January 4th. Reid Stoyberg, guise at Plummer's Lodge, will be our guest tyer. See you then!
Just a reminder that the Philip Rowley Lake tying session already has 19 participants for January 30. We hope to get 30 participants for the all day workshop. Send me an e-mail to get signed up (email@example.com).
Merry Christmas everybody! Enjoy the holiday season.
