Doug Cook was our guest fly tyer tonight. Doug showed us a very cool pattern called the stonefly bugger. The 15 students tonight had to tame seal dubbing and make legs from partridge feathers. Combine an excellent stonefly pattern with a bugger type pattern and you have one excellent fly. Thanks Doug for the outstanding pattern. A very cool streamer pattern that is part stonefly.
...we had time to also tie a halfback nymph from left over materials at the Phil Rowley Workshop. That will be an excellent lake pattern.
Next week, Doug Pullen will be our guest tyer. Doug has three patterns all ready for us. One pattern is some sort of mystery. Sounds like fun!
...we have only two sessions left for the year! See you next Monday, March 10th.
