February Chapter Meeting

February 8 Chapter Meeting: Come, watch and learn from Vermont’s own Gerry Herrera, nationally known as a premier fly tyer and regularly featured in Fly Tyer Magazine. Gerry will be tying an articulated deer hair fly inspired by Royce Dam's "Arctic Shrew."  It is tied with caribou hair, and uses what I call "raw hair" techniques.  There is no trimming or sculpting involved; you just tie clumps of hair on the hook!  It's a really fun fly,and is a great pike/bass fly.  For more info go to his website: Technicaltyer.com. Meeting starts at 7:00 pm at the Holiday Inn, Williston Rd.
