Our February meeting will feature two guest tyers for the tie-along session featuring our new video camera system. Dick Bonamarte will be demonstrating the Polar Shrimp, a popular steelhead fly. This one features a inovative method of securing the wing. And Mark Teeters will show off two of his favorite patterns, the Mole and the E/C caddis.
