A little snow isn't going to stop us! Last night we gathered around the fermenters and brewing equipment at Sebago Brewing HQ in Gorham to tie some Euro/Czech style nymphs. As the snow flew outside, Nate Wight walked us through three patterns which thought would be a good basis for "standards" - Frenchie, RCC Caddis, and Brown + Copper. Not only are these great all around flies, but perfect for Maine waters! These style of flies and fishing techniques are fairly new to most anglers, so Nate also did a great job of explaining gear specifics and also details on how these flies are fished.
Our efforts to continue supporting Project Healing Waters through the raffle. Up for grabs last night was a Redington Hydrogen 10' 3wt Euro Nymph fly rod and a box of 90 Euro nymphs tied by Nate Wight. Thank you to Redington and Nate for the kind donation!
The beers last night at Sebago were great! I saw about 5 different styles around the room, so there was clearly plenty of options for everyone. Lots of dark beers to go along with the snowy weather...
The next Maine Bar Fly will be announced soon, so keep an ear out!
