Tying flies and drinking brews!

Last night was the first-ever "Flies and Flights" brewery tying night organized by RSFF member Chris Williams.  About a dozen folks showed up to tie, including several new faces. According to Chris, some of the flies tied included wooly buggers, Clouser minnows, Concordia Specials, dragonfly nymphs, and even some intruder-style micro Spey flies!

Flies and Flights is a casual tying event to be held monthly at Rally Cap Brewing Company (11212 Pennywood Ave, Baton Rouge).  Time is 7:00pm. Just bring a vise and materials to tie and share your favorite patterns. Or if you're new to tying, you can get instruction and tie a simple fly, like a wooly bugger.  Extra vises, tools and materials will be available.

Chris also maintains the popular "Fat Fingered Fly Tying" blog, which has a great selection of various fly patterns with step-by-step instructions, as well as photos of a wide variety of freshwater and saltwater species. Check it out at
