January 22nd fly tying - Robert's Surprise

KFF monthly fly tying session
* Monday, January 22, 2024

6:30 pm
Rapides Westside Library, 5416 Provine, Alexandria

* Please note that this month's tying session was moved to the 4th Monday instead of the usual 2nd Monday *

For our first tying meeting of 2024, Robert Hughes will lead us in tying “Robert’s Surprise” - as Bill Morrison calls it.  That's because Robert is keeping it super duper secret about what he'll be tying so the Ruskies don't get hold of it first!  But he did give us a clue: he'll actually tie two flies, the first of which is his own creation, and the second a variation of a popular pattern. Both patterns have been extremely effective on catching trout on the Little Missouri tailwater! He also has a special technique for tying one of these that some of us have never seen or read about, so you don’t want to miss this one.

We're also excited to announce that the club has a new 55” television to view our tying and meetings in 2024!

Newcomers are welcome to participate or watch. As always, all materials other than thread will be provided, and we have several sets of tools for any who do not have their own.

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