If you missed this great fly tying session and presentation, I’ve attempted to capture some of it: Speakers, Monthly Meeting, March 27, 2018 Terry and Roxanne Wilson; Fly Fishing for Bass and Blue Gill
The theme for March 25th was “Topwaters.””
Troy Miller “The original is on the web (google “Troy shaddie clouser” and you’ll find it). I have a newer recipe with a different tying method but gives about the same result. Quicker and more durable. The new recipe also has three or four variants that is use in different conditions/applications. I still love that fly, it was one of Clarke’s favorites. I tie them with plastic eyes to fish right under the surface (specks over the green lights) to double heavy lead eyes to fish stripers on a sinking line deep in Texoma. And any depth in between. Tied correctly, they never foul.”
Cabela’s is proud to host the League City Tying Team, made up of members from the Texas FlyFishers, Fly Fishers International, and other local anglers. Come join the group at the table and learn about methods, techniques, and tools, as it relates to tying flies to fish our local Texas waters. Talk around the table can get lively, and informative, so feel free to ask questions.
The theme for March 25th is “Topwaters.””
IMPORTANT NOTE: Terry and Roxanne Wilson plan to be at the meeting early, at approximately 5:30, to tie some of their original bluegill patterns. So, anyone who has the slightest interest in fly tying will not want to miss this opportunity to visit with, observe and/or participate with these gifted fly tyers.
