  The December SOFT meeting will be held on Tuesday the 8th and will feature tying demonstrations by Dave and Cathy Hamilton. These two received the Fly Tyers of the Year Award from the Oregon Council at the Expo in Albany last spring so we are in for a real treat this month. Dave plans to tie some chironomid patterns and a feruled red worm. Cathy will demo the Bitch Creek Nymph, a well known woven pattern. Don’t miss this one , it’s two for the price of one. Meeting starts at 6 pm and the demos will start at 6:30. Bring some flies or materials for the raffle and bring a friend or fellow fly tier. If everyone will bring some goodies the club will provide some Holiday beverages.
