January 19 fly tying

Our first fly tying session of 2016 will be Tuesday, January 19, at the Rapides Westside Libary in Alexandria. Time is 6:30pm.

This month, Carlton Townsend will lead us in tying the Rainbow Warrior.  This pattern was created by Lance Egan of Utah, a member of the USA Fly Fishing Team since 2003.  Lance is also a member of Umpqua's Pro Staff.  The Rainbow Warrior consists of materials that are proven to attract trout. Whether fished "straight" or under an indicator, it's a great nymph for riffled waters on the Little Mo and Lower Mountain Fork.

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.
