The public is invited to a fly tying session with Tony Soltys and the Raincountry Flyfishers at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 15 in the Thunder Mountain High School library.
Soltys will instruct participants on how to tie a fly that he said has worked very well for cohos on the Juneau roadside. He calls it the "When All Else Fails" fly, but uses it sparingly.
"It is a little more time consuming to tie than most other coho flies but it can really save the day," Soltys said.
The fly is basically a half-and-half but tied flat-wing style on a sixty-degree jig hook with added features that trigger strikes.
The Raincountry Flyfishers will provide materials for anyone wishing to tie along. No charge and non-members are invited to join this meeting.
A basic fly tying kit will be provided for anyone new to fly tying if requested in advance. Club members will be available to assist. Call Tony Soltys at 789-9179 for information.
