Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions and Jim Holland of Shannon's Fly & Tackle Shop in Califon will be giving a presentation on early spring hatches titled "Match the Hatch" on Thursday March 20th. The event will begin at 6:00 pm at the Raritan Inn in Califon.
Tim is local to the area and has been fly fishing and fly tying for better than 30 years. He is also a video producer and his fly tying videos appear weekly on the Orvis News blog, MidCurrent, Caddis Chronicles, Global Fly Fisher as well as many other websites.
Jim, co-owner of Shannon's Fly & Tackle, has been fishing and fly fishing his whole life. In addition to his full time job as a teacher, Jim writes a fly fishing column "What's Hatching" for the Black River Journal.
Tim & Jim will be demonstrating simple, stream sampling techniques that allow anglers to directly observe what types of food are available to trout at a given time of year. Specifically, they'll be discussing early spring. Having observed what's available, participants will then be coached through tying several imitations.
Cost of the evening is $50.00 per person ($30.00 for members) and includes dinner and tying materials. Please bring vise, tools and thread.
