Fishing' in the Dark with Taryn and Karen

Taryn and Karen love to chase the hatches in Central Alberta at dusk on our home rivers. Whether it be brown drakes, PMDs, caddis or the fabled hexagenia hatch, these two adventurous gals are always ready for an adventure in the dark! Crashing around in the dark when the mosquitoes are out doesn't bother either Karen or Taryn!

Tonight TC Outfitters was filled to capacity to try their hand at tying a foam hexagenia and Craig Matthew's, X-Caddis. Karen showed the gang how to tie a foam hexagenia and Taryn showed everybody how to tie the X-Caddis! Great job ladies.

Next week Dan Reaman is our guest tyer. See you then!
