Here are a few photos from last week's Kennebec Valley Fly Tyers sponsored by KVCTU and some good news. The good news is that March is one of those months with 5-Thursdays. So we get to squeeze a 3rd session in this month instead of our usual two.

On the 30th our guess tyer is Mike Holt who will demonstrate two of his favorite flies. They are the F fly and the Snowshoe Hare Emerger.

The F fly is a CDC pattern developed by Marjan Fratnik of Slovenia which first became popular in the 1980s. (Europe used CDC long before CDC found it's way to the United States)

The Snowshoe Emerger uses two proven fish catching materials – Pheasant Tail and Snowshoe Rabbit's foot hair.

Few materials match the fish catching and floating abilities of CDC or hair from a Snowshoe Rabbit Foot. CDC and a Snowshoe Rabbit's foot hair provided to each attendee. (free Rabbit's foot for the first 20 attendees)

General Information:
No experience necessary!
Beginners Tables (tools provided) & Experienced tables.

Buker Community Center
22 Armory St., Augusta, ME

$5.00 entry fee

Two sessions – experienced tyer will demonstrate 2 flies and you can tie along with them

Held on the 1st and 3rd Thursday's of the month, from 6:30 to 9:00pm. (and 5th Thursday when we have one)

Monday night's speaker: Jim Babb!

"Have you ever been so passionate about something that it occupies your every waking moment? In his latest collection of essays, celebrated writer and life-long angler James R. Babb reflects on his ardent preoccupation with the sport of fishing—one so strong that it often keeps him awake--and further recounts many of his most memorable adventures from a life spent casting flies across the globe. From the majestic lakes and streams of northern Maine, to the smaller brooks of eastern Tennessee and crossing the Atlantic to the lochs of Scotland and the chalk streams of southern England, Fish Won’t Let Me Sleep transcends international boundaries to demonstrate that the joy of fishing is universal."
