You Are Invited: Fly Tying Night  - Thursday April 25th 

Texas Hill Country Area Fly Tiers' Get Together.

7:00-9:00 pm @ the Volunteer Fire Station, Waring TX 78074
(Corner Waring Rd & N. Front St)

Area fly tiers are invited to attend the "third Thursday"  April only, 4th Thursday fly tying night hosted by Texas Hill Country Fly Fishers.

This Month's featured tier is Jack Bartell.  Jack will demonstrate the techniques for tying the famously effective Matt Bennett fly, "LUNCH MONEY." 

Matt Bennett quote: The Lunch Money was created out of need for a bite-sized baitfish streamer for the Texas Hill Country; however, it’s not just limited to bass down here. Most of our baitfish in the Texas Hill Country are in the 2-3" range and due to our normally ultra-clear water, our bass can be fairly finicky, which meant it needed to both look realistic and have the right amount of movement to work correctly. 

Notes from Jack Bartell, THCFF fly tying leader--   

"I'm an avid fly angler and fly tier. I especially enjoy tying flies designed for our Hill Country waters, designed by local friends and fly fishers. And even more, enjoy fishing these flies for native fish.

Our Club sponsors the "3rd Thursday" fly-tying night in Waring, TX (only a few hundred yards from the Guadalupe River). I hope to see you there.

This session will focus on local Hill Country fishing waters and flies that can be used at our trout leases. All interested, experienced, or newbies are welcome to come and tie whatever flies they'd like. We promise to provide a fun, happy environment to learn, teach, and socialize. Please join us!"

New tiers, novice, and experienced are welcome to this great THCFF Club event .  The emphasis is always on fun, learning and teaching in that  order.  Assistance for new tiers is readily available. Club vises and tools are provided for those without, visitors included!

Tiers:  Bring your own vice and materials.  Usually a “fly of the night” will be demonstrated at the beginning of the night where members to learn new flies, ask questions if needed, and tie the fly if they desire. 

Club members are encouraged to donate any excess tools and materials that they have to the club to build a stock of materials for use at the tying nights.
