MCFF Meeting -- 10 June 2024


After watching a Flip Pallot video showing his modernized knotted leader construction, MCFF club secretary Capt. Frank Brownell ran us through a close-up demonstration of the process! The technique features a snelling-type constrictor knot, a modified step ratio that's a huge departure from the classics and a much longer overall length to improve your chances with today's more shy gamefish. Mid-Coast Fly Fishers meets the second and third Monday of every month, and as always, all are welcome! I'll be glad to save you a seat!
