Our next meeting is May 18th, once again at Glen’s office at 1505 Clinton Business Park Dr. Our last meeting was a success as a tongue-in-cheek copy of the Bob Ross Painting Party adapted for fly tying and using Barry Ord Clarke, the the Feather Bender, as our version of Bob Ross. Scott was scheduled to be our demonstration tyer again at the upcoming meeting but unfortunately he discovered that he was double booked. So in lieu of Scott’s tying program, Breambugs.com casting instructor “Bugs” Castwell will deliver a riveting discussion of fly line tapers and their applications. If someone would like to offer to be the demonstration tyer, please contact Glen, otherwise “Bugs” is offering to tie his favorite pattern for the Barnett Mayfly, the Hex-a-Flex (left). And… the water is there, cast or if you need help with casting we can do that too. The crappie have been making a showing lately. Let’s start at 6:00 again to take advantage of the light.
Breambugs is donating a selection of flies for raffle/silent auction (left),
Orvis is donating a collection of line nippers, there will be some material and flies as well. We’ll have a couple of pizzas for growling stomachs.
DUES – The annual dues for Magnolia Fly Fishers is $25.
