North Country Soft Hackles
Come to Southern Highroads Outfitters on Saturday, Jan. 9th between noon and 4:30pm for a free afternoon of fly tying traditional North Country style soft hackle flies.
Bob Kern, fly tying instructor and member of the Catskill Fly Tyers Guild, will begin at noon starting a brief history of North Country soft hackles also known as spiders. He will explain the different types of hackle and materials used to tie these flies. Technique and historical references will also be discussed. Then, the clinic will progress to tying various patterns.
Bring your own fly tying equipment and materials or you are welcome to use our shop equipment if needed.
Tyers of all levels of experience are invited. You can participate or observe the day. There is plenty of seating in our classroom.
Come learn about tying some of the most effective flies on the river. We look forward to seeing you there!
