Getting ready for opening day

Prepping for opening day of trout season is as much a rite as actually getting out on a icy stream, freezing for a morning and wondering why you do this year after year. Why did you tie those flies? The answer is: Because. Tying flies is as much an art as it is a skill. One has to know what the insect looks like in color and how it floats on the surface or in the case of a nymph, how it travels with the current underwater. Classes are held for novices and practiced tyiers alike for a couple of evenings of camaraderie and learning.Fly Tying Class 15Fly Tying Class 15aMiddlebury High School, Middlebury, Vermont 03/06/2006


About Vermont Woodchuck

Professional Photojournalist since 1969 with a BFA from SUNY Purchase 1979-Visual Arts. I despise advocacy news journalism. Every photojournalist should be prepared to show their camera RAW images of news events. Reason: RAW images cannot be altered no matter what is done to the finished product.
