Be Careful Out There!

Flows on local rivers are running high!

Good news for our projected water supply this year but makes for dangerous conditions on the rivers. This is a good time to sit in a warm spot and tie some flies or watch some fly fishing videos! Be careful, check the flows and stay home if conditions are dangerous!

Fly of the Month: Hare's Ear Nymph

March 27th, 6 to 8 pm

Oak Grove Nature Center

March FOM, Hare’s Ear Nymph, third in the Bronze FFI fly series Lots of room for open tying too. Bring your kits, set up and tie. DFF fly tiers will take on the hare’s ear nymph at this month’s fly tying session. The fly imitates a number of aquatic insects and has been a staple in western fly boxes for many, many years. The instructions for tying the fly are shown via a video and then newer tiers are assisted by more veteran tiers in their efforts. All materials are supplied. The club does have some fly tying tools to lend if needed. The fee for the class is $5 to cover the materials necessary to tie three to five flies. This month’s class will take place on, Wednesday, March 27th at the Nature Center, Oak Grove park. Start time for the class is 6:00. The class is expected to run about an hour and a half. The FOM Bronze series was not meant to keep those wishing to do open tying from coming out on the fourth Wednesday of the month. Bring your kits and tie your favorite patterns. Of course there’s no fee if you’re not participating in the series. We also need mentors to help with the new people. Come on out. Have some fun.
