Clousers and Deceivers with Plummer's Lodge Guide , Reid Stoyberg

The library was jammed to capacity with avid fly tyers to take in Reid Stoyberg's presentation tonight about fly fishing for lake trout at Plummer's Lodge on Great Bear Lake. I always look forward to Reid's presentation. There is a lot to learn from Reid's experiences guiding on Great Bear Lake. Reid loves to guide guests who come armed with fly rods. He loves the challenge which this year yielded a monster laker at 36 pounds on the fly rod. 

Reid guided us through tying Bob Clouser's tried and true streamer, the Clouser Minnow and Lefty Kreh's Deceiver. Both are great streamers and if you tie them large, you can catch gigantic lake trout with them.

Thanks Reid for the enjoyable presentation! I can feel the passion you have for guiding at Great Bear.

This is our last presentation until after Christmas. Karen and I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas! We will see you Monday January 5th when Dr. Bill Young is our presenter!
