feathers & cocktails no.2

This is hopefully going to be some sort of a series. There is no rhyme or reason to when they will happen. Best to check this website. I will be doing a fly tying demo of the classic EP Peanut Butter, you are welcome to bring a vice and tie along. I would like to invite my friends and fellow fly fisherman to attend. Its free and something to help build community. Hope to see some new and old faces out there…. the first one we did was the EP Spawning Shrimp and I think there was some good info exchanged and I know we had a few laughs for sure. The EP peanut butter is a simple, yet effective small bait pattern that can represent any baitfish depending on the colors you choose. From a Bluegill to a Pinfish, i will do a classic Black/Purple used for everything from tarpon to freshwater bass… Cheers – Al Q

feathers & cocktails #1…this wednesday 2/8 at 6pm – free fly tying demo with Al Q

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
