Barrie Mann led the MCFF Fly Tyers group tonight in tying his Simple Bunny redfish fly. Very easy fly to tie, no reason not to keep a dozen on hand!! Mid-Coast Fly Fishers in New Smyrna Beach meetings are second Mondays, tying nights are third Mondays.

I like to lay out and double check everything before hitting the water.

I met some of the guys from Fair Flies at this year's IFTD Show and they were kind enough to send me some samples of their awesome Ethically Sourced fly brushes. I feel bad that it's taken me this long to try them, but I received the package just before we evacuated from Hurricane Irma and I haven't spent much time at the vice since then. I'm tying up some flies for my trip next week and finally get to play with the brushes. These things are incredible!! These are some of the thickest packed brushes I've used, there's a ton of dubbing, crystal, tinsel and even rubber legs in these things!! But, even with all that material they're still flexible and wrap really well. I can't wait to see their action in the water!! Check out their story, FairFlies are doing good things!!

Still more than half a week away, but I'm already counting down the hours until I'm back, knee-deep in cold water waving a stick in the air! Find me at the Orvis Down The Hatch show in Alpharetta, I'll have stickers with me!

Planning a trip to the mountains. Debating if I should revisit my old fishing holes or find some new ones. What would you do?

The fly from last night's Mid-Coast Fly Fisher's tying meeting was an all-species fly from the pacific north west called the Nomad. Originally a trout fly, but scaled up and taught by member Carl Sanders to work in the warm, Florida saltwater. Definitely one to tie in various sizes!
