Thursday, June 13th at 7 p.m.
In June we welcome back legendary angler, author and fly tier Dave Hughes with a brand new program on Wet Flies and Wet Fly Fishing. Despite its ancient origins and varied styles, wet fly fishing is frequently overlooked by the modern fly fisherman. Dave will show that, fished correctly, these versatile flies can outfish the more standard contents of your fly box. In his long career Dave has been fortunate to meet, and in most cases to fish with, some of the most famous wet-fly anglers in the world: Sylvester Nemes and his soft-hackles, Pete Hidy and his flymphs, Polly Rosborough and his fuzzy nymphs (the basis for all-fur wet flies), and Davy Wotton, instructor in the video Wet Fly Ways. This new presentation reviews the various wet fly styles, with notes on what makes each attractive to trout, including notes on many hatches that they match. It focuses on how to rig and fish wet flies.
Non-members are welcome at this free event and no RSVP is required.
