While my website is still undergoing a facelift and a little rearranging, I wanted to send out a handful of updates. This weekend August 10th , 2019 is the Dette Flies Open House! I will be tying flies along with Fred Klein and Mike Beckley so stop on over to their new shop in Livingston Manor, NY for a day of food, fun and fly tying; then stay for the pig roast!
Spey dayz will be held August 17th at the Firemen’s Field in Hancock, NY from 9am to 4pm. There will be presentations and vendors as well as many of us tying flies around the event so stop on by and see what Spey Dayz is all about!
Quill Body Soft Hackle is up on the Dette Flies website!
And because you can never have too many soft hackles; the winter issue of Fly Tyer Magazine featured my article on working with Quill bodies. It has troubleshooting along with different patterns to help you try your hand at working with quill bodies. While I’m a huge fan of paper publications, If you don’t already have a copy you can click the photos below to go to their website and checkout a slightly different digital version.
