Allen McGee “soft hackled fly” seminar – August 8, 2016

The (unaccredited) Double R Ranch College of Trout Fishing is pleased to announce that on August 8, 2016 we are offering a seminar about fishing the “soft-hackled fly.” The presentation will be made by Allen McGee who in your Stream Keeper’s view literally wrote the book about soft hackles. You’ve seen his masterpiece mentioned in my annual blog entry concerning the top 10 books you must read about fly fishing. Its title is, Tying & Fishing Soft-Hackled Nymphs. The seminar will be held at the Picabo Store at 2:00 p.m. and the grill will be open for your convenience. Allen has just come out with a second book about soft- hackled flies, including some dry patterns. I am sure that Allen will bring a quantity of both books for purchase and autographing.

At this point I have to restrict attendance to Members as I have no idea what the turnout will be and space could be a consideration. Email or call your Stream Keeper for reservations. I will put non-members on a waiting list and call you if space permits. As you know, my phone is (503) 939-7657 and my email is dougandres.whenpigflies.gmail.com. Be sure and leave you phone number in your message. I will also announce this event at the July 3rd Member’s Barbecue and in the Sign-In Wagon.

See you there!

Doug Andres, Stream Keeper, Double R Ranch
