We are a group of Fly Tyers who want to improve our tying skills. We come from as far north as Roseburg, Oregon and as far south as Yreka, California to converge on Gold Hill, Oregon. We are all different skill levels but we agree on the joy of Fly Tying.
The January SOFT meeting will be held on Tuesday the 12th. Our program this month, entitled “The Further Adventures of the Soft Hackle, will be presented by Peter Giffin, with attention paid to Steelhead patterns and some unusual techniques. Pete is a new member this year but not new to fly tying. He is a former Orvis guide and tying instructor in Colorado, a former member of the Northwest Atlantic Salmon Tiers Guild, and has experience fishing the Rogue and Umpqua rivers. So join us for an evening of sharing the art. Meeting starts at 6 pm and the demo will start at 6:30.
