Fly Tying Demonstration

Saturday, September 21, 12noon-2pm
Fly Tyers from Trout Unlimited's Croton Watershed Chapter

One of the earliest descriptions of tying a "fly" to catch trout appears in an Italian manuscript from the 1490's. At one time fly tying was a skill most anglers needed. Going into town to buy a few flies wasn't practical. Today, all of that has changed. We can buy almost anything online with just a few clicks.
Join us on Saturday, September 21, when some local fly tyers from Trout Unlimited's Croton Watershed chapter demonstrate their ancient craft. We’ll start with a quick overview of the insects they are trying to imitate, the fur and feathers they use and the "recipes" they use to create their flies.
All ages. We invite everyone to pick up and explore the materials and tools they use. The library display cases will feature examples of their work.
