BIG FLY equals BIG FISH With Allan Grosdidier

This month’s meeting will feature our very own Allan Grosdidier. Allan will show us how to tie a large fly that he has named “Jerry’s Hopper”. There is a story behind the development of the fly and its name which Allan will share with us. This fly has caught huge trout and could also be used to fish for bass. . While Allan has called this fly Jerry’s Hopper, depending upon how it is tied, it could imitate a huge stone fly. This fly can be tied in several sizes up to #4 on a long shanked hook (3X).

Our Mission

  • To promote, improve and enjoy all phases of fly fishing.
  • To maintain a high standard of true sportsmanship and promote social relations among its' members.
  • We, individually, endeavor to take at least one youth (beginner/no age restriction) fly fishing annually; instruct them, to the best of our ability, in the art and responsibilities that are soon to be wholly theirs.
  • To fraternize and cooperate with organizations whose aims and purposes preserve our waters and to promote the sport.
  • To provide instruction and information in fly casting, flytying, rod building and entomology. These classes and/or clinics will be open to the public with no fee
