Recap: Maine Bar Fly - Lone Pine Brewing (Dec. 19th 2019)

Last night we made our way out to Gorham for the second Maine Bar Fly of this winter's season. The location was Lone Pine's newest and was a great spot for tying. We circled the barrel-tables around a large projector screen and tied some steelhead flies. Joe Webster was our featured tyer and did a great job of explaining step-by-step the White Death and Blood Dot patterns. These are two flies that are not only deadly for steelhead in the Great Lakes area and Pacific Northwest, but can be translated to trout flies as well for Maine and beyond.

It was great to see the amount of people who came to simply watch and socialize. I counted a lot of Maine Guides there last night! We all enjoyed Lone Pines beers as well. The Pillow Fight, Bee Bot, and Portland Pale were the popular beers of the night. I personally tried the Holy Donut beer as well which is a stout with chocolate and coconut - great for the holidays/winter.

As per usual, all of our vises were supplied by Jon Larrabee of HMH vises. These vises prove to be perfect for our fly tying classes. They are built so that year after year we never have any issues. 

The next Maine Bar Fly will be January 14th at Fore River Brewing. Hope you can join us!
