Fly Tying Weekend Once Again




I thought I would add this photograph so we can remember what a steelhead looks like. It's been a while since the conditions were advantageous for fishing.

2/1/07--The way this weekend's weather forecast is looking, it will obviously be a fly tying weekend once again. This coming week is supposed to be the coldest week of winter so far. The few rivers that are still open, such as the Oak Orchard River and the Salmon River at Pulaski N.Y, will have heavy slush ice flows this coming week. Spring Brook at Caledonia will be the only spot that will not be too severely affected by this cold snap. The fish at Spring Brook may not care how cold it is, but our rods, reels, fly lines, leaders and tippets will be severely affected by the extreme cold.

The fly tier is going to be Carl, for Saturdays fly tying demonstration at Coleman’s fly shop. Carl will be demonstrating techniques for using rotating vices. The demo runs from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. If you have the time, please stop and enjoy the demo. It will be a lot warmer than fishing.

One final note; if you are interested in fly tying lessons, either beginners or advanced fly tying classes, going through February 7 to March 21. Time 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. held at the shop. Please give us a call at the fly shop. The number is 352 -- 4775 if you have any questions. We still have had plenty of space in our beginners fly tying class. These classes are small and both Carl and I teach the classes together, with two instructors there is plenty of one-on-one instruction.
