Soft Hackles Made Easy

On Friday, 29 October 2021, we’ll get to enjoy the presentations of two excellent Zoom presenters, Kathie Burns and John Kreft. After they’ve demonstrated their soft-hackle patterns, we’ll end the evening with another “TYING TIP.” It will be the last in the series of melted monofilament eyes and we’ll actually use the featured material to tie one of our favorite soft hackle patterns and yes, it will have melted-mono eyes. Where did we find this last GREAT material? You probably have it somewhere in your home and like us, didn’t realize what a great material it was until discovering it in the ****??? Join us on Friday at 6:00 PM (Mountain Time, adjust for your time zone) to find out.
