February 20 fly tying

KFF monthly fly tying session
Monday, February 20, 2017
Rapides Westside Library, 5416 Provine, Alexandria

Yes, it's President's Day, but the Westside Library will be open!

As always, beginners are welcome!  If you don't have tying tools, the club has a few sets for use during these sessions.  Materials are provided.

This month Gene Taylor will be leading us in tying the Peacock and Partridge Wet Fly.  Wet flies are great imitations of emerging caddis pupa, diving caddis adults or even mayfly spinners. These once-popular flies have made a comeback in recent years.

There are several videos for tying this particular fly on Youtube. Here's a link to one of the better videos:

See ya' there!
