December 16 Fly Tying at Orvis - Alex Beane

For December, the fly tying session is moved up a week to the 3rd Monday (due to the holidays).  The session will take place Monday, December 16, at the Orvis Company Store in Perkins-Rowe in Baton Rouge.  Time is 7:00pm.  The public is invited, and beginner tiers are welcome.  

Our featured tier will be Alex Beane, manager of the Orvis store. Alex started fly fishing at the age of 11 in upstate New York and never looked back. He spent nearly a decade managing a fly shop in Colorado and guiding there, then moved to Baton Rouge and worked for Backpacker.  He's a highly respected fly tier and an avid kayak angler.  We are blessed to have Alex as part of our club, and community!
