Fly Tyers’ Roundup

Date: Sunday, February 5, 1:15 PM at the Clubhouse

This is a reschedule of December's FTR, which I had to miss due to a Covid infection. (Mistakes were made...)


Fur Blending
This month's FTR will feature a demonstration of how to blend fur using a coffee grinder. Creating your own blends allows you more precisely to get the color and texture you want in your dubbing. I will be bringing a coffee grinder and a bunch of pelts so anyone who wants to can try it out.
And remember, we need all hands on deck to tie up a bunch of flies for the Wounded Vets' Program - I'm hoping we can get to 50 dozen by August so please, when you're at the vise, set a few flies aside to donate to this worthy cause.
