The Spokane Fly Fishers meet on the second Wednesday, September – April, of every month at 7 pm at:
ST. FRANCIS SCHOOL
1104 W. HEROY
SKIP AND CAROL MORRIS
FEBRUARY 8TH AT 7:00 PM
Skip Morris is a very well known fly-fisher and fly-tyer and his name is known to anglers around the world. He has written 18 books on fly fishing and tying, including the established standard beginning fly tier’s volume Fly Tying Made Clear and Simple, The Art of Tying the Bass Fly and Morris & Chan on Fly Fishing Trout Lakes (with Brian Chan). He also has several tying videos and DVDs. He has been published in over 300 articles on fly fishing and tying magazines. Please visit his website, www.skip-morris-fly-tying.com for more information.
Skip Morris will be presenting “Making Nymphing Work.” It will be an instructional Power Point presentation on how to fish nymphs in rivers and creeks. He will explain the techniques, the rigs (including the dropper system, the suspended nymph, lead on the leader…), reading nymph-water, tackle—the whole ball game, made clear and understandable. Still, there is humor and there are brief anecdotes to flesh out the information and entertain.
Carol Ann Morris will give a presentation on Fishing Photography. She is a photographer, videographer and illustrator (watercolor, pen and ink, pencil) who works with Skip on his books, magazine articles, and instructional videos. Her photographs and illustrations have appeared separate from Skip’s work, in Gray’s Sporting Journal, the Yale Angler’s Journal, and Fly Fishing & Tying Journal.
Carol has presented her PowerPoint presentation titled “Fly Fishing Photography 101: How to Capture What You See” at fly clubs and sportsman’s shows around the US and Canada.
There will also be a tying session at the Inland Northwest Wildlife Council 6116 N Market Street for SFF club members only. It will be on February 8th, from 1:00 PM– 4:00 PM.
Cost for the tie along will be $10 per person.
