Fly of the Month will have a fun, new twist. We will be tying the five required flies for the Bronze Medal in the Fly Fishers International Fly-Tying Skills Award Program. This program is designed to develop and test tying skills and knowledge.
This month we will start with the Woolly Bugger. Our goal is to follow the recipe, tie a strong, durable fly and express the proper proportions of the fly and using proper and acceptable materials.
Class participants will receive a Bronze Level Handbook that contains tying information, the instructions to tie the target fly and links to tying videos for the flies, the materials to tie at least 3 flies and support and instruction during class for the regular Fly of the Month fee of $5.
Tiers of all skills welcome. Tools available for use to those that do not have them.

Bronzeback Fever II, Ontario, Canada: The New Frontier: The province of Ontario, Canada is home to over 250.000 lakes and 62,000 miles of river systems, many of which have yet to be explored. Bronzeback fever II is a fly fisherman's guide to exploring this incredible fishery that Steve
Cooper calls the best smallmouth bass fishing on the planet. The Atikokan region of Ontario is un-crowded, easily accessed and very affordable. In most cases, these waters seldom, if ever, see a fly and the fishing is truly outstanding. Steve promises to share all the information needed for a DIY adventure of a lifetime- including his favorite lakes, lodging, flies and travel information. This program will surely ass one more stop on the adventure seeking fly-fisher's bucket list!
