Agenda for SFBCA Indoor Meeting
Tuesday, February 18, 2020, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Birkdale Community Centre (Sunroom B), 1299 Ellesmere Rd, Scarborough ON M1P 2Y2
Dear fellow SFBCA club members:
Please join us next Tuesday evening for fly tying, bamboo rod building, net handle crafting, fishing tales and more.
Fly Tying: Jurgen B plans to demonstrate how to tie an (egg sucking) leech. This is a good fly for both trout and bass. It can be fished under a float or straight to your fly line, retrieved slow using either long pulls or short slow ones. Materials and hooks provided as usual.
Tedy G plans to demonstrate how to tie a deer hair case caddis larva. Learn how to spin deer hair on the hook shank and how to create a relatively realistic larva. Hooks and materials will be provided as usual BUT for the spun deer hair pattern, participants should bring “strong” tying thread. (Size 6/0 thread will work but size 8/0 thread is too weak and may snap due to the tension needed to spin the deer hair). Black, brown or dark red would be the preferred thread colours but white can also work if you have a marker to add some colour to it.
Bamboo Rod Building: We expect several folks will be working on their Ganaraska Special bamboo rod splines at this meeting and perhaps one member will show off 3 new blank sections that were glued just this week. If anyone wants to revive an existing rod project or start a new bamboo rod project contact SFBCA.Vice.President@gmail.com. If any SFBCA club member needs a culm to two of fine Tonkin cane, please contact SFBCA.President@gmail.com.
Net Handle Building: Let Paul M know if you want to learn how to build your own custom landing net.
Thoughts of the of the week: Thanks to all those that signed up to help represent our club at the Toronto Sportsman Show! We can still use more hands on certain days/times so contact Ray Cockburn SFBCA.President@gmail.com
if you are still thinking about helping out.
….And, to all those celebrating Valentine’s day alone this year… GO FISHING instead. Better yet, take a family member on Family Day.
Fishing Tales: Fishing is the common interest of our group. If you have a favourite picture or two to share, please do so. They can’t all be whoppers but they are all a thrill. Who has been ice fishing? Where are your pictures? Actually, who needs ice? Jurgen still manages to catch fish in moving water. These 2 were caught just hours apart. (Can you spot Jurgen’s stonefly pattern?)
Calendar: Dates for upcoming SFBCA fly tying/Rod Building meetings and other SFBCA events can be found, as usual, on our website and Facebook page:
