    Thanks to all who attended the May meeting. We tied all three version of the Sol Duc by Syd Glasso and it was very educational. Not in the attached photo how the body tapers neatly from the silk through the dubbing. This is the trademark of Syd's tying style.

    For June we will be tying the Scrimshaw Spey. Since it is June it is a good time to be fishing alevin type patterns and the Scrimshaw is a new pattern I developed based on input from a variey of experts fishing 'the bloom'.
