April SOFT Meeting


The April meeting of the Southern Oregon Fly Tyers will feature Paul Wolflick as our tying demonstrator. Paul always has a pattern or two that are unique and productive.

 I have been assured that we will have some great raffle prizes this month, so bring a few extra bucks and try your luck.  Congratulations to our members, Dave and Kathy Hamilton for winning the Fly Tier of the Year award at the IFFF Oregon Council Expo last month in Albany. They truly deserved it.

The Southern Oregon Fly Fishers will be holding their annual Fly Tyers Meeting on Thursday April, 16th at the Taprock Event Center in Grants Pass. Over 15 tyers will be demonstrating their skills and talents. Everyone can learn something new at this event.

The May meeting of the SOFT club will feature a special guest from Cottage Grove, Oregon. Bob Wolf will be doing a special program on midges. It will include entomology, fishing and tying techniques. This is a Power Point presentation and features a tie along segment. We will have materials there for everyone who wants to learn the patterns Bob calls his Magic Midge series.  I watched him tie at Albany and Lewiston last month. You don’t want to miss this one.  Bring your tools and a notepad.
