May 22nd tying - Slumpbuster

RSFF monthly fly tying
Monday, May 22, 2023

Adult Education Building
Broadmoor United Methodist Church
10230 Mollylea Drive, Baton Rouge, LA

Ken had something come up, so instead of tying his articulated pattern this month we'll have David leading us in tying the Slumpbuster. Created by John Barr, this fly was intended to mimic a baitfish with materials that look alive in the water.


    hook: streamer hook (3x-4x long) size 8
    head: medium gold conehead
    underbody: lead wire .020 gauge
    ribbing: gold brassie size wire
    body: gold sparkle braid
    tail, overbody, collar: crawfish-colored pine squirrel zonker

Our fly tying sessions are open to the public, and beginners are welcome. Materials are provided.  Bring your vise and tools, or just watch. For those without tying tools, the club has some for use during these sessions.
