The weather this past month has been difficult to say the least. I would be more pessimistic if my Giants hadn't shown me at least some signs of life! It has been a waiting game. We've kept ourselves busy at the shop tying flies and getting ready for the holidays. Our Fly Tying Program has started. Len Ruggia is teaching the Introductory Class on Saturday mornings starting at 9:30 am. Beginners just need to show up; the classes are free and we have some kits they can use for the class. Of course, we have a variety of quality but affordable vises for sale if fly tying is for you. Sunday morning, tying will return this week December 9th with John Collins presenting a program on Cased Caddis and Jig Flies. Bill Ninke will offer a program the following week, December 16th on Hair Stacker flies including a mayfly emerger, a cluster midge and the Hair Stacker Royal Wulff. Classes are free, bring your vise and threads. Materials are provided.
Fishing has returned and skillful anglers are
