Tie 1 On

Hot enough to "tie 1 on"?--I think so--let's do it this Tues., June 7, at Unicoi Outfitters in Helen at 6:00 PM. Ask Parks Davis with the big wild brown if the tying session is worth attending and I think his answer would be "yes" with a smile.

Parks was a member of our intro. to fly fishing and fly tying class we teach at church each winter and has really gotten involved with this sport. He attends most of our tying sessions and learned how to tie a simple "soft hackle" just last month. Guess what he caught this big boy on--you're right--a soft hackle. There's just something about catching fish on your own flies. So attending one of our "tie 1 on" sessions may help you to "tie onto 1" like the brown in this picture. Thanks Parks, great job!

We're planning on tying some sulphurs this week and will also have something special on our program. Captain Milt Smith will be there to show us some of his flies that he used 30 or 40 years ago. You will enjoy what Milt has to say--he's a great guy.

I hope to see a lot of folks at this month's session. If you tie a lot or you are just getting into it, I hope you can be there--Unicoi provides all equip. & supplies if you need it--thanks Unicoi.
Henry also makes a great cup of coffee for us too.

See you Tues--thanks,
