Another fly tying season kicked off today with 16 tyers finding out about fishing patterns that were used for tiger trout fishing at Twin Lakes near Roblin, Manitoba. The two patterns are also quite useful here in Central Alberta. It was nice to see several new faces in the group.
Tonight we tied two patterns. The black and red ice cream cone chronomid and the DDH Leech.
Next week our guest tyer is Evan Ritchie. See you next week!
