March Fly Tying

Date: Saturday, March 14
Time: 9 AM - 1 PM
Place: Farm & Home Center Room 113, Arcadia Rd, Lancaster

Will Winter never end? Another snow storm forced the cancelation of our February session, but we'll try once more to have a day of fly tying, fishing stories, and assorted lies to help make it through until the streams are ready to fish. Come and join us, tie some flies to fill those gaps in your fly boxes, and maybe pick up some tips or new patterns. Lessons can be arranged if you let us know, otherwise bring your own tools and supplies.

On March 18, Paul Jacob, who operates a guide service in western New York will treat us to a double-header. The first presentation will be about fishing for steelhead, and brown trout on the tribs of Lakes Erie and Ontario. The second one will be about fishing for trout and salmon on the Kanektok River in Alaska. The Kanektok flows through the Togiak National Wildlife Refuge and holds all 5 species of Pacific salmon, as well as rainbow and dolly varden trout, greyling and artic char. Join us at the Farm & Home Center and daydream about fishing for trophy trout and salmon.
