March 26 fly tying

Our next monthly fly tying session will be at the Goodwood Library at 7711 Goodwood Boulevard, meeting room Conference Room B on the 2nd floor.  Time is 7:00pm.

This month we will honor the late Lefty Kreh by tying his Deceiver.  The fly was created by Lefty in the late 1950s as a baitfish pattern for Chesapeake Bay stripers. When Lefty moved to south Florida in the early 1960s, he began using it for a wide variety of saltwater fish.  It's reported to have caught over 100 species to date.  In 1991, the Deceiver was honored by the U.S. Postal Service with a stamp of the fly.

Bring your tying tools if you have some. If not, the club has a few sets for use. Materials are provided.

As always, beginners are welcome!

We'll discuss the Grand Isle Fly Fishing Weekend for this year. Last year, we were forced to cancel after a booking error had occured and we were unable to find an alternative site for that weekend.

January 22nd fly tying

Our next monthly fly tying session will be at Cabelas in Gonzales.  Time is 7:00pm. Bring your tying tools if you have some. If not, the club has a few sets for use. Materials are provided.

This month we'll be tying the Fool's Gold Crab Fly.  This fly was created by fly fishing guide Johnny Miller for sightcasting to redfish in shallow water. It has the key ingredients that make for a great redfish fly, including: a long tail, contrasting colors, gold flash, and lead eyes to get down to the bottom quickly. Cast it out, let it sink, then retrieve in short, measured strips along the bottom.


As always, beginners and other visitors are welcome!
