February 15 Roundtable

Join for the first Roundtable of the new year and learn variations of the cicada pattern courtesy of Tommy Marks.

Paul Gerlach will be our guest tier for our upcoming roundtable. This will be a different approach to the evening in that Paul will have us tying 2 flies. The elk hair Caddis and a pheasant tail nymph, which are 2 very popular spring flies for most trout fishers, will be the flies for the evening.

The second part of the evening will feature Don Fine talking about using these flies tied together as a dropper. Those who are familiar with droppers know how successful it can be to fish 2 layers of water at the same time. Don will show us how to tie the dropper on and how to fish this combination in different waters. Join us on the 18th and see just how versatile this pattern is and how easy it is to tie.
