Hex Mayfly Emerge

Apr 12 6:30 PM @ Aptos Grange

This fly will be very important if you’re planning to go to the fishout at Lake Almanor in June. The Hex also hatches in other waters in northeast, California at the same time. You will sure want to have a few if you are planning to head that way. This class is more advanced than usual, and will be difficult for beginners. If however you still wish to attend, that’s fine, there’s always something to learn. As usual, the class is free and materials are provided. sign ups are required so that adequate material will be there for everyone. If you have yellow six old thread, please bring it. There are vices and tools for beginners to borrow. Regarding Covid, I will be wearing a mask, and since we are close to one another, you may consider the same for yourself. If you are ill in any way, please stay at home. Thanks

Future tying classes. Dates and subject may change, please go to Fly Name to see more information.

Damsels are available to finish year round, but in the spring and early summer, they migrate to shore, crawl out on vegetation and structure, shed their shuck, and begin to fly around to mate.
