Fly Tyer’s Round Table

February 22 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Chris Matarazzo – Co-Chair – Fly Fishing & Tying Committee

Fly Tyer’s Round Table

Wednesday, February 22nd, 6:30pm – 9:00pm – Main Clubhouse

All members are welcome to come and join the fun at our 2nd “Fly Tyer’s Round Table”. We will be having some laughs and sharing stories while we are demonstrating how to tie fly’s for fishing various types of water around the state. If you would like to join us in tying, then bring your gear along. Not a Tyer? Then this is a great way to see what this aspect of Fly Fishing has to offer. If you would like to give it a try, we will have a vise available with materials for a simple starter fly. Bring the kids and join in on the fun. Coffee will be provided (or bring your favorite beverage with you).

These are some of the patterns we will be working on:

Bead Head Hares Ear Nymph – One of the most popular flies tied. Fishes well on the Farmington as well as the Scantic river and its tributaries. Good prospecting pattern as trout will take this fly throughout the spring and winter seasons. The bead head is both an attracter and adds weight to the fly to help get it down into the feeding zones. The bead also makes for an easily finished head without the worries of crowding the hook.

“Hi Vis” Adams Parachute – The Adams dry fly is a classic dry fly that fishes well in most CT rivers and streams. Small sizes are very effective in small streams as it represents many different insects. This parachute version floats well and rides a little lower in the water to imitate both an emerger as well as an adult dun. The bright-colored stem helps to pick up the fly on the water easier.

Montreal Whore – This Streamer pattern originated in Maine. This pattern can be trolled in lakes for Salmon and Trout, as well as thrown in rivers and streams for all trout species.

Caddis Larva – A simple nymph pattern good for beginners. This pattern is very effective for catching trout in rivers and streams.
