MCFF Tying Meeting - June 2019

In tonight's MCFF Tying Meeting Emmett Pizzo led the group in tying his preferred variation of the Peterson's Spawning Shrimp Fly! This fly pattern gave us practice in palmering a hackle feather, wrapping chenille, using a hook guard and creating monofilament eyes. Emmett also demonstrated the use of several other material choices and how they would effect the overall outcome of the fly. If you want to learn to tie flies proven to work on Florida's mid-coast, don't miss another MCFF Tying Meeting the third Monday of each month!!

It's "Ask The Captains" night at Mid-Coast Fly Fishers!

It's "Ask The Captains" night at Mid-Coast Fly Fishers. There's an awful lot of combined experience sitting at that table covering the Florida coast from St. Augustine to Mosquito Lagoon to well south of Cape Canaveral and they're ready to take questions! MCFF has this type of Q&A several times a year, so if your in the area come check out a couple meetings. I'm sure you'll learn something!

Found a grill small enough for the camper!

Found a grill small enough for the camper (or a stream bank!), but still big enough for a dual-zone fire set up! I broke it in last night on some brats and it performed very well. This Weber 18" Jumbo Joe is going to see a lot of use!

Young Outfitters

Drove up to Palatka this morning to check out the Blue Crab Festival and ended up discovering a small fly shop! Young Outfitters opened in January of this year on Palatka's Second Street and carries an assortment of kayaks, rods and reels (fly and conventional), flies and lures, and a selection of hats and tshirts. They also offer classes and gear rentals! Check them out if you're ever in the area!
