Activities Meeting – Tie Along with Dan Walker
December 23, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Come Tie Along with Dan Walker!
Hello fellow club members and it is the Holiday Season already. It is unbelievable that this year is almost over, but probably most of us are happy it is. So for some holiday fun and cheer, we are bringing Dan Walker to the vise to tie a great pattern series of the “Opal Minnow.”
If you’re not too familiar with Dan, he is a long time member of the Michigan Fly Fishing Club. He is one of the members who usually has a fishing report to give. When we used to have regular meetings, he was always tying egg flies, or some other kind of pattern, wherever he was sitting. Also, he has appeared as the “Featured Tyer” program in the past. He is a master at the vise for sure, and he is a fish magnet when he goes out fishing.
HOOK: #8 to #4. Down eye standard shank fly hook or a jig hook
BEAD HEAD: Silver 4.0mm to 5.5mm sized for the hook
BODY THREAD: Chartreuse is best, or white
TAIL: 2 strands of Opal Mirage Flashabou
BODY: Opal Mirage wrapped over chartreuse thread base
HEAD THREAD: Fire Orange 140D or Uni 6/0
WING: Sparse white bucktail tied in the gap, with small fire orange collar against the bead head
WING FLASH: One strand of Opal Mirage folded to each side of the wing.
