Deadline for Summer Workshop approaching

KFF Summer Workshop
Saturday, June 9, 2018
8:30am to 12:30pm
Cotile Volunteer Fire Department
55 Parker Rd, Boyce, LA

Our annual summer workshops typically bring in a special guest, or cover a special skill or genre of our sport that would not be practical for our regular meetings and tying sessions. Past topics have included: rod building, popper construction and painting, casting clinics, tying saltwater flies for the marsh, and fly fishing and tying flies for the Little Missouri and Little Red River in Arkansas.

For June 9th, the course will be on "Introductory Deer Hair Tying". Special presenter will be our good friend, Kevin "Doc" Andry of Baton Rouge. Doc will lead us in tying a couple of deer hair flies and explain the various terms used in tying with hair, as well as hair selection and tools. For those who plan to attend the Contraband Fly Fishing Expo in July - featuring one of the world's premier deer hair tiers in Pat Cohen - this will be a great opportunity to learn about this art form.

We've been advertising this workshop for several months, and have posted a page "Summer Workshop" with details. Thursday night, May 24th, is the deadline to register for the workshop. After then, you can still register as an "audit" participant, which means you can sit and watch but won't be tying.

These sessions are open to members-only of Kisatchie Fly Fishers or other recognized fly fishing clubs.  Refreshments will be provided.
