It is time to get ready to hit the stream with flies to entice the Trout!
Fly Tying Evenings
The chapter will again sponsor fly tying sessions.
WHEN: The first session will be held on January 19, 2010. Every other Tuesday evening from 7:30-9:30 PM
WHERE: Rockville Izaak Walton League Clubhouse (same venue as the chapter meetings). 8301 Waring Station Rd. Germantown, Md. 20874. 301-972-1645The format for the tying sessions will be essentially the same as last year. Five sessions will consist of tying. The 6th and last session will be fishing with our flies in the IWL pond. Charles August will teach beginners. Tools and materials will be provided.
A curriculum for beginners will include the green weenie and green caddis nymph (session #1), wooly buggers (session #2), pheasant tail and gold ribbed hare’s ear nymphs (session #3), cream and other “variant” dry flies (session #4), elk hair and X caddis flies (session #5).
An experienced tier from the chapter will serve as “guru” for members who have advanced beyond the “beginner” stage. These will include Dick Switalski, Leslie Gollehon, John Lachin, and Allen Smeltz. Members are encouraged to bring their questions, patterns they would like to learn to tie, and materials to share and exchange.
