March 14th fly tying - A&W emerger

KFF monthly fly tying session
Monday, March 14, 2022

Rapides Westside Library, 5416 Provine, Alexandria
Also livestreamed on Zoom and YouTube

This month, Bill Morrison will lead us in tying a version of Jeff Guerin's A&W Emerger pattern. Jeff developed this buggy pattern specifically for the March Brown hatch on the Little Missouri River in south Arkansas. While we'll tie in March Brown colors in size #14, different colors and sizes also work well at time.  Fish the A&W by stripping it slowly just under the surface and watch out - the eats can be very aggressive!  This fly in black and chartreuse version could also be used for bluegill.

All materials will be provided, and we will have several sets of tools for any who do not have their own.  Cream thread is used for this fly, but brown also works as well.  Size 70 or 140 denier is good.

Masks are optional when indoors at the library. For Zoom participants, enter the meeting number and password sent by email. For YouTube participants, search for "Kisatchie Fly Fishers" on YT.
