Flies and Lies Social is Saturday, Feb. 22

Saturday, Feb. 22 from 9 a.m. to noon Trout Unlimited Tiadaghton Chapter #688 members are offering free fly tying lessons for children and adults during the Flies and Lies Social at the Wellsboro Community Center, 3 Queen Street in Wellsboro. This is a free event. There will be free donuts and coffee.

The Tiadaghton Chapter has equipment and materials that beginners can use. The club's highly skilled fly tiers will demonstrate tying “dries” to “wets,” from egg patterns for “Steelies” to bass flies to terrestrials or delicate size 22 tricos. They will also teach specific techniques such as "married wings" and " spun deer hair." More experienced fly tiers can learn new, intricate patterns.

Those who have had little experience with fly tying to those who do are welcome to stop in to watch and participate. "Flies and Lies is open to anyone, men, women and children, fishermen and non-fishermen,” said organizer Art Antal. Youth 14 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

“This will be a casual, informal session. Folks can stop in and visit any time between 9 a.m. and noon,” Antal said. "Flies and Lies gives area fly tiers a chance to meet, swap ideas, materials and techniques as well as to tell a few fishing tales."

"We are not holding a formal swap meet or table sale, but people can bring fishing items to sell or trade such as used tackle, fly tying materials or other fishing-related items," said Antal.

Members will be on hand to answer questions about the Chapter’s conservation efforts, including Marcellus shale monitoring and other programs like Trout in the Classroom.

This is the second of three Flies and Lies socials. The last one will be on Saturday, March 21 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Wellsboro Community Center at 3 Queen Street in Wellsboro.
