Damsel & Caddis Dries

John Kreft from Sisters, Oregon will present a couple of his favorite damsel and caddis dry flies. He is a master Zoom presenter, custom fly tier, fly fisher, who operates a weekly blog, RiverKeeper Flies and YouTube channel in his spare time. In the WEEKLY TIP, we’ll continue our search for the “perfect dry fly footprint.” Who knows what our fertile minds will dream up! Join us at 6:00 PM MST to find out and welcome Gretchen back from her fly-tying class in Florida.
