Default Alpharetta Outfitters Delayed Harvest Fly Tying Class - Sat. Nov 11th, 10-1pm

Alpharetta Outfitters Delayed Harvest Fly Tying Class w/Steve Hudson!

With Delayed Harvest season here again, fly fishers are understandably excited about hitting one of Georgia's five great DH streams!

But what flies should you take? Is there anything special about the flies you use for DH fishing?

The answers to those questions are fascinating, and in this unique fly tying workshop we will be using those answers to create some unique and highly effective flies especially for DH and other stocked trout.

The patterns that we'll cover -- patterns such as the Enhanced Y2K, the Hudson Streamer, the Chebaw Fly, and more -- have been designed with an eye toward how stocked trout behave. They'll be familiar in some ways but a bit out of the ordinary in others.

The bottom line? These flies work!

"These are the flies that I fish through the DH season," says workshop leader Steve Hudson. The patterns were developed as he worked on the book TYING FLIES FOR STOCKED TROUT, a tying guide which takes a "behavioral" approach to fly design while paying special attention to Delayed Harvest trout and to how DH trout think. The result was a suite of flies that gets the job done on Georgia's DH streams -- and that's what you'll be learning to tie!

Please note that this is an intermediate class. It is assumed that participants have mastered basic tying skills (pinch wraps, thread management, finishing knots, and so on).

When: Sat. 11/11 10-1pm
