January Fly of the Month

Hot Spot Pheasant Tail Nymph tied by Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions

January's fly of the month is a hot spot nymph.  Hot spot flies were developed by tiers from eastern Europe to give trout an enticement, something that would trigger trout who may not otherwise pay attention, to take notice of a fly.

At most general meetings we feature a "fly of the month" and everyone is encouraged to participate.  By going to the page entitled "Flies and Fly Tying" you will find a recipe for the fly including any special tying instructions.  Bring in at least two and you will receive a raffle ticket for each fly.  Those who have not tied a fly for the raffle can purchase tickets for a dollar a piece.  The winning ticket gets half of all the flies submitted while the other half is retained by the chapter.
