May 8th fly tying - Bluegill Gurgler

KFF monthly fly tying session
Monday, May 8, 2023

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

For this month, we'll be tying the Bluegill Gurgler. This is a fun-to-tie topwater bream fly that also works for bass. We'll tie it in a size 8, which is a good crossover size to temp bass along with the bluegills. Bill Morrison also ties it in size 10 (bluegills) and sizes 4 and 6 (bass). It uses Walmart craft foam, so you can mix and match any color combo you like.

As always, materials other than thread will be provided and we have several sets of tools for any who do not have their own. This fly uses 140 denier thread in any of black, tan, olive, etc..

As always, we broadcast the sessions via Zoom and YouTube for those who cannot attend, and record the session for future reference. If you would like to join the Zoom but do not have the Zoom numbers, please email Bill Morrison.  The YouTube livestream and recording will be posted to the Kisatchie Fly Fishers YouTube channel.
