The march meeting of the Southern Oregon Fly Tyers will feature a tying demonstration by Dan Kellogg. He will be tying a Classic Irish Salmon Fly. Many of the Irish flies were predecessors of our modern day Steelhead patterns. In the proper sizes they have proven to take the “Steely” on the Rogue and in smaller sizes many Trout. They are colorful and fun to tie. Most hair wing patterns can be tied with common materials and standard techniques. So bring your paper and pencil to take notes and your camera for a picture or two. Don’t miss this one, there might even be a couple in the raffle.
Speaking of raffles, We will have a great one this month with lots of tying materials and accessories. Each person will receive a free ticket for a special item for one winning number. We will also put out the remaining items from Paul Cooks collection at drastically reduced prices with the proceeds going to the Chris Barnum collage fund. There will be lots of free items to take away too.
Bring a friend, it’s always a good time. The coffee is free and there might even be cookies.
