Monthly Fly Tying Contest

Sponsored by
American Fly Fishing Co.

At each monthly club meeting, a fly tying contest is held with winners receiving gift certificates generously donated by American Fly Fishing Co.  The pattern for each month's contest is always the one featured in the previous month's 'Fly Tyer's Corner' - as published here and in The Leader.

To participate, just tie the fly, bring it to the meeting, and submit it for the contest before the meeting gets underway.  Important... flies will be judged against the exact pattern recipe and materials published in the monthly 'Fly Tyer's Corner', so don't use any other recipes or resources for your fly, and try to use the specified tying materials if at all possible.  

There are two contestant categories:  Beginner and Experienced.  The winner of each category receives a gift certificate from American Fly Fishing Co.  You may only win the Beginner category twice before you must then enter the Experienced category.  See The Leader for more information on the contest, and have fun!
