June 17th fly tying - Goober Bug

KFF monthly fly tying session
Monday, June 17, 2019
Rapides Westside Library, 5416 Provine, Alexandria

For our June fly tying, Bill Morrison will lead us in tying the Goober Bug.  This fly is the creation of Bruce Sublett of Texas, owner of Gulf & Ozark Flies, who states that it's one of the best post-spawn bass flies he's ever fished.  It's also good for brown trout, smallmouth bass, and even large redear.  Best of all, it's easy to tie, so novice tiers can add several colors to their box without spending many hours at the vise!

Here's a link to the YouTube video showing Sublett tying this fly:

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