March is one of those months with 5-Thursdays. So we get to squeeze a 3rd session in this month instead of our usual two.

On the 30th our guess tyer is Mike Holt who will demonstrate two of his favorite flies. They are the F fly and the Snowshoe Hare Emerger.

The F fly is a CDC pattern developed by Marjan Fratnik of Slovenia which first became popular in the 1980s. (Europe used CDC long before CDC found it's way to the United States)

The Snowshoe Emerger uses two proven fish catching materials – Pheasant Tail and Snowshoe Rabbit's foot hair.

Few materials match the fish catching and floating abilities of CDC or hair from a Showshoe Rabbit Foot. CDC and a Showshoe Rabbit's foot provided to each attendee. (free Rabbit's foot for the first 20 attendees)

General Information:
No experience necessary!
Beginners Tables (tools provided) & Experienced tables.

Buker Community Center
22 Armory St., Augusta, ME

$5.00 entry fee

Two sessions – experienced tyer will demonstrate 2 flies and you can tie along with them
second session – open tying – ask questions and get help on patterns that you want help with.

Held on the 1st and 3rd Thursday's of the month, from 6:30 to 9:00pm. (and 5th Thursday when we have one)

April 20th at the Buker Center is shad fly night!
The shad will be in the Kennebec River during May through the summer in the Waterville area.

Master Maine Guide Jim Thibodeau is our featured fly tyer.
If Jim is not catching shad no one is....

The Umpqua Shad fly and California Shad Fly are the flies to be tied.
Join us too learn these flies and more importantly where, when and how to catch shad this season on the Kennebec River below Lockwood Dam, Ticonic Bay.

Thank you, KVCTU, for running the fly-tying classes this winter and spring. I was very impressed by each, of the talented, class leaders; I definitely met some new, interesting people; and I can't believe how many clever, fly-tying techniques I learned. All the classes were always relaxed, informal, informative, enjoyable, and friendly...hopefully, this class will be offered again in the future.
