Int'l Brotherhood of the Flymph

Post by Irv » Tue Mar 04, 2014 3:49 pm

Trying to get a fix on when and where the annual "Brotherhood" event will be held in 2014. Last year it was at the museum in Livingston Manor. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance - Irv

Hank - Thanks a million for the response. I'll look at the sites you've mentioned and will definitely have some questions since the entire area of North Country Spiders is a whole new world for me. Irv

Hey smuggler - In just the last few hours I've come across some very helpful material. I've been reading WC Stewart and other works on north country fishing (both the flies as well as the ethos/style) and once the weather in my neck of the woods gets a bit warmer than arctic (unbelievable for my part of Virginia) I plan to concentrate on the upstream wet fly that Stewart so adamantly insists on. I've already found some interesting and helpful entries on the forum that speaks directly to the Stewart "method." I'm tying Stewart Spiders (black, grey, and claret) and will offer them to some very selective browns in the western mountains of Virginia.

Irv,

A big, hearty welcome to the this forum and we hope you feel at home here because for most of us, this is our home! Looking around and taking it all in is a daunting task in and of itself but very enjoyable. Go slowly, savor it, and ask a ton of questions!

Stewart is such a good read, I'm reading it again right now as well. Hope to see you at the museum this April!
