The Fly Fishing Section will be holding its next meeting on Thursday, June 20th. @ Wrigley's Chicago Bar and Grill.

Join us for a presentation by Stephen Johnson titled "North Country Flies- What are they?; How do you fish them?; How do you tie them?"  A preview of North Country Flies for those who know about them and those who don’t.  Yes, even though some of them are hundreds of years old, they still catch fish.

A retired Soil Scientist, Stephen has been fly fishing and fly tying for thirty five years. For the last fifteen or twenty years he has developed a preference for small streams and the flats and mangroves of saltwater.  Although both are fly fishing, he considers them to be completely different activities.

Stephen is proficient at tying many types of flies.  Some of his favorites are North Country flies (sometimes called spiders or soft hackles) and Puglisi style saltwater flies.  The North Country flies consist of minimal materials and look easy to tie. However, the challenge for the tyer is using the right material in the correct amount in the appropriate place; then the sum is greater than the parts.  The Puglisi style flies are fairly intricate and time consuming to tie but the finished product is worth the effort.
