Just returned home from a very nice visit to the Ashland Fly Shop and a fly tying class hosted by friends Will and Jon. We had 8 great tyers gathered around the table in the back room and this was an opportunity to explore the world of steelhead tube flies and tell some fishing stories too. We tied three tube flies that are almost always in my sling pack when I’m on the water in the winter.
After the class I entertained our group with a movie: Fly Fishing Pacific City. This is a 50 minute review of the season in PC — with winter steelhead, black bass, lingcod, albacore, estuary chinook, town lake summer steelhead, and hatchery catchable trout — all part of a good year close to my family cabin.
My thanks to the people who shared a Saturday afternoon tying flies, I wish you good times at the bench and on the river with your new creations.
