November 19 - Dragon Tail Streamer

KFF monthly fly tying session
Monday, November 19, 2018
6:30pm
Rapides Westside Library, 5416 Provine, Alexandria

Bill Morrison will lead us in tying the Dragon Tail streamer. Dragon Tail patterns are the hottest new flies on the planet! Made of a chenille-like material tapered down to a fine point, it was originated by David Magnum, a renown tarpon guide on the northwest Florida Gulf Coast.  It's manufactured through Cascade Crest Tools and available from Orvis and various retail fly shops. While Dragon Tail flies have proven effective for tarpon, they've also been the new favorite for bass, pike, musky, pickeral and other predatory species.

** This will be our last tying session for 2018, as we take a break for the holidays. We'll restart our tying sessions in January.**

Beginners and guests are welcome. If you don't have tools, the club has a few sets for use during the session.  Materials will be provided.

Final weeks of Mixed Bag!

We're into the final weeks of our inaugural "Mixed Bag Contest", the CPR tournament where size doesn't matter, but diversity does. 

While Bill Morrison continues to build his lead, there's good reason for EVERY member to get at least ONE entry in. That's because the Grand Prize drawing will be drawn from all members who enter at least one fish. If you have several entries in, consider adding a few more. We'll be awarding the TOP 5 places, so any member can get still place!

ALSO... no need for a token in your photo as we're using the metadata. So just submit your entry with fish and fly rod (outfit) in pic!
