December Fly of the Month
At most general meetings we feature a "fly of the month" and everyone is encouraged to participate. By going to the the page entitled "Flies and Fly Tying" you will find a recipe for the fly including any special tying instructions. Bring in at least two and you will receive a raffle ticket for each fly. Those who have not tied a fly for the raffle can purchase tickets for a dollar a piece. The winning ticket gets half of all the flies submitted while the other half is retained by the chapter.
The fly for December is the Frenchie Nymph, a fast sinking nymph that is a favorite among competitive fly fishermen.
