Rick and Bob collaborated to do a presentation tonight. Bob showed everybody how to tie a jujubaetis, a Charlie Craven pattern. This tying style can be used for many mayfly nymphs by adjusting the colour of the super hair you use. Rick showed the group how to tie some small foam dry flies that are micro chubby chernobyls.
Next Monday is Family Day and there is no Fly Tying Monday.
The following Monday Bernie Peet is our guest instructor, see you then!
