The Madison High School Fly Fishing and Tying Group meet for the first time yesterday. I had 7 students show up.
Spent 30 minutes of Smart Lunch teaching a group of students about fly fishing, tying, and entomology. They payed really good attention and ask relevant questions. I personally enjoyed it and plan to continue.
This the pattern I discussed and showed them.
Here is a link to the creator, history, and tying instructions.
This pattern is awesome for smallies, largemouth and big bluegill.
Note: The eyes are soft polymer beads strung on mono and set with glue. The legs are the core of Bungee material.
Dedicated to my son. Ilove you.
