No matter how much fly tying knowledge you have or the number of books you have read, or videos you have watched, or lessons you have taken, there is nothing like being in a room with some like-minded folks chatting about materials, hooks, patterns and techniques…and then top that chat off by tying some of the flies that work PARTICULARLY well on the waters we usually fish. Our Gray Ghost Fly Tiers ( an outreach group of the Sebago Chapter of Trout Unlimited) will in these next two months present Featured Fly Tiers (and notable fly fishers) from our local area. All of them will be sharing the flies that worked wicked well for them.
