Today’s NexGen Bonefish Flies by Dick Brown


Just as flies for other species suggest various food forms appropriate for attracting those quarry, so bonefish flies portray the creatures eaten by Albula vulpes. However fly patterns for this elusive species must accomplish a few other critical tasks besides just looking like dinner.

2013 Tie-One-On-Athon

Southern Culture on the Fly, the South’s leading online fly fishing magazine, will hold their annual Tie-One-On-Athon Sunday, February 24, 12noon-6pm. The fundraiser draws in some of the region’s best fly tiers including guides, shop owners and commercial tiers, who will see how many flies they can tie for Project Healing Waters, a non-profit dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of wounded veterans through fly fishing and fly tying. New this year: the public is invited to bring their vises and join in the fly tying. Those who bring their vises to tie receive free admission.

Presented by Southern Culture on the Fly, The Hunter Banks Company and The Fiberglass Manifesto.

Held right in the heart of downtown Asheville at 80 N. Lexington Avenue, Suite C. Advance tickets available for $10 at Hunter Banks, 29 Montford Ave., and at the door the day of the event (kids under 13 are free).

This event has quickly become everyone's favorite winter tying session providing a casual venue to hang out with some of the South's best tiers. As always this year's event is open to the public and will feature gear raffles, quick clinics, food, beer, and enough feather and fur to make you think the circus train exploded. Please join us on Sunday February 24th to raise some money for our wounded veterans.

Tying Flies forTherapy

"The squad has rendezvoused at 0800 hours just as it does each Thursday. Al Dalphonso gives the orders. He's not much for barking, though. More of a lead-by-example type. "If you pinch it right and get the tension where it needs to be," says Dalphonso, 66, "you don't need a ton of knots." A U.S. Navy veteran, Dalphonso could be giving instructions on rigging or tying off a vessel.But he's holding a bunch of pearlescent mylar between his thumb and forefinger. With a thin black thread, he ties the material to a hook." Read on at The Weather Channel of f'n places.
