Recap: Maine Bar Fly at Fore River Brewing (Jan 10th 2018)

Wednesday January 10th was the second installment of the Maine Bar Fly. Held at Fore River Brewing in South Portland, we watched as Shaun Baggitt guided us through three deadly nymph patterns. The Zebra Midge, Brassie, and Higas SOS were the flies of choice. Sharing similar tying techniques and materials, these three patterns are highly effective in New England - especially in the winter (more on that with an upcoming blog post!). We tied these on size 12 Gamakatsu C12 Scud hooks so that the larger hook would be easier for demonstration purposes and also for those newer to tying.

The wood stove was roaring and the beer steadily flowed. The beer selection at Fore River was great with a lot of various stouts, IPAs, and pale ales that worked perfect for a cold winter night. HMH Vises was kind enough to bring a dolly full of their Spartan vises for everyone (that needed one). So, with ample beverages and fly tying materials people dived into the flies of the night...
