One Fly Contest

Ron Forbes brought home both trophies for DFF by catching fish from the start of fishing to the close of the contest. Ron generously shared his techniques throughout the day but even with the sharing of strategies, no one was able to come close although many fish were caught throughout the day. Well done Ron!

Fly of the Month

May 22nd, 6:30 to 8:30

Two for the price of one!

The first fly we’ll tie, the Grey Goose Midge, is a proven lake and stream pattern and one that a tier can build on with a number of variations. The challenge in tying this fly is the size, the largest a 16, the smallest (that I tie) a 20. After mastering the basic technique. Tiers can add beads, change the dubbing to thread or flashabou, use single and double wire ribbing, add a tail shuck or some emerger fibers at the head. The second fly is the Pheasant Tail Variant dry fly. This fly is the final fly in the FFI Bronze series of flies. The class will be taught at the Nature Center, Oak Grove Park, on May , with a start time of 6:30. Materials will be available to tie both patterns. Tying fees are waived for this session. Open tying is encouraged as well as the patterns shown.
