JOIN our August edition of Bugs N Brews and learn weaving techniques from local tyer Dave Boyer.
Dave’s Evil Weevil is the conveyance for learning the weave, which can be adapted to numerous materials for a wide range of flies.
To take the class the cost will be $10 per head, materials provided.Of course since the Bugs N Brew nights at Rapp’s Barren Brewery in Mountain Home are all about “Taking Fly Tying To The People” we invite non-tyers, fly fishers and others along to watch, and socialise on the Rapp’s Barren couches or outside on the patio.Michael Schraeder is continuing to provide brats and his unbeleivably good beans for a modest donation. There is no other way to have this much fun on a Wednesday night.
