Event Navigation
Joe Bruce, one of the most well known and knowledgeable of the FSFF club members, will be demonstrating how to tie his amazing “articulated bullethead darter fly”. In addition, he will share his expertise with wire bending for the darter trailer connection/s, weed guards and even how to convert basic hooks into “circle hooks” that are less harmful to fish. Joe is widely published and has been a very successful fisherman for many decades.

The demo will illustrate the powerful effect articulating creates and the use of a wire former for making the connectors. This innovation of a articulating connector for flies, jigs and fluke is new to the fishing venue and only exist with us. He will have his former for sale, along with his Bullethead Darter book and more.

The Free State Fly Fishers is a non-profit organization with a mission of conservation and preservation of our natural resources, the promotion of fishing and is an affiliate of the Federation of Fly Fishers. Meetings, lectures and fly tying sessions are open to the public free of charge.
