November program recap

Despite freezing rain and a winter storm warning for areas just north of town, ten of us braved the conditions and met for what was an interesting session.

The program itself was a quick overview of fly tying basics: the tools, some sample materials, and the demonstration of a simple but very effective fly that works great for panfish (the fluff butt). A fluff butt is basically a woolybugger tied with a beadhead or a micro-jig hook and without a hackle feather.

Here are some tips for beginners...

KFF next meeting Monday, November 25

The next meeting of the Kisatchie Fly Fishers will be on Monday, November 25.  Location is the Rapides Westside Library on 5416 Province Place in Alexandria, in the north meeting room.  Time is 6:30pm.  This meeting is open to the public, and all are invited.

Our previously scheduled program on kayak fishing has been moved to February.  It'll be an exciting program so stay tuned. 

As this is our last meeting of the year - no meeting in December due to holidays - we will talk about a great alternative to spending those cold winter days in front of the television (besides hunting, of course).  That's TYING FLIES!   We'll have an overview of tools needed, a few materials to get started, and even demo a simple pattern guaranteed to catch fish especially in the winter months.

In the spirit of the season, we'll have snacks and beverages.  See you there!
