February 17 fly tying - Christmas Tree

Our next fly tying session will take place on Tuesday, February 17, at the Rapides Westside Library in Alexandria.  Time is 6:30pm. The public is invited.

This month Dan Fromme will show us the Christmas Tree. No, not the one he decorated for Christmas. Rather, this is a popular fly for catching rainbow trout on the Little Missouri River in southwest Arkansas. But it's also a good fly for white perch and bream.  Best of all, it's easy to tie.

Bring your tools if you have some, materials will be provided.  For those without tools, the club has 3 sets of tools for use only during tying sessions.

Since this meeting precedes Saturday's "Fly Fishing 101", we'll spend about 5-10 minutes talking about the event prior to getting started on the fly.
