Fly tying prodigy

At our November meeting, Catch mentioned having met a young fly tier on his recent trips to Mountain Home, Arkansas (at the IFFF Southern Fly Fishing Fair) and Townsend, Tennessee (at the Fly Tiers Weekend).  His name is Tradd Little.  He's mastered everything from dry flies to deer hair to salmon flies to realistic patterns.  And the most amazing part - Tradd is only 12 years old!

Here's a link to his website -  It shows all of the flies that Tradd ties, and there's even step-by-step instructions for some of his favorites.

November 16 fly tying

Our last fly tying session of 2015 will be Monday, November 16, at the Rapides Westside Libary in Alexandria. Time is 6:30pm.

This month's pattern will be the Y2K Bugger.  It's a variation of the Yuk Bugger - half woolybugger, half Yuk Bug.  It's called Y2K because it was created in 1999, and at the time, had to be Y2K compliant and ISO 9000 approved.  Species: it's great for bass, bream, crappie and all species of trout.

As always, beginners are welcome. Bring your tools if you have some, materials will be provided.  The club has a few toolsets for those without tools.
