I have decided to start a little series of fly tying sessions entitled feathers & cocktails. The first one will be held next Wednesday at the Shade Hotel dining patio around 6pm. There will be plenty of parking around the hotel. I will be demonstrating a really cool shrimp pattern designed by my good friend, Enrico Puglisi, called the EP Spawning Shrimp. This pattern is deadly on all species willing to eat a shrimp fly. You can tie them light with bean chain eyes or heavy with 7/32 dazzle or lead eyes. I like to used them for bonefish in skinny water, They will even entice a permit on the flats. I am sure our local corbina will eat one too. I will have very limited fly tying supplies, so please try to bring your own materials or just come to watch and take notes. It should be a fun –filled evening filled with appetizers, cocktails and lots of fish stories. I want to thank my good friend, Bill Matthews who helped organize this location for us and manages this restaurant’s hospitality and food for the Zislis Group. Bill is also a licensed captain with FlyTime fly-fishing and charters our local waters for calico bass, bonita, barracuda and other inshore species. Come on down meet some new flyfisherman and have a few laughs with us. Cheers –Al Q
