Learn to tie a surface fly for coho salmon

Mark Hieronymus will demonstrate how to tie a surface fly for coho salmon and how to fish it for one of the most exciting salmon strikes available in local waters. The Raincountry Flyfishers will provide materials for free. Just bring vise and tools to tie and have this fly ready to go this fall when the silvers arrive.

This workshop will be held at 7 p.m. in the Thunder Mountain High School library on Wednesday, April 24. The public is welcome, even if not tying the fly, and the event is free.

For more information, call Tony at 789-9159 or consult RaincountryFlyfishers.com.
