For those who love small streams, wild trout, and life...in their simplest form
Sunday, April 8, 2018
Good morning friends. This will be a simple post, short and sweet, and interesting to you I hope. On Wednesday April 11th I have the pleasure of tying flies at the Connecticut Fly Fishermans Association "Fly Tyers Round Table". The event is a great one both for fly tyers as well as fly fishermen and women. Lots of tyers creating patterns from salt water to farm pond bluegills. The event is free and open to the public. If you have the chance come see us. It's located at Veterans Memorial Clubhouse 100 Sunset Ridge, East Hartford CT.
I'll be tying the "Spruce" the original and a few variations.
In addition to the Spruce I'll also tie a couple of patterns that have worked well for me this past winter and into the spring.
A pretty scene. This one is located on one of CT's class 1 wild trout streams. It also looks like a photo from the book Voelkers Pond. This leads to a project I'm tinkering with, and that is to tie all of the fly patterns from that book. Below is the first.
The "Royal Trude" the fly is featured in a couple of pages in the book.
Now "Bumblepuppy" Theodore Gordon's streamer fly....just need to get a couple of more materials. Coming soon.
