THERE aren’t many fish in the Ozarks that can resist a juicy crawdad and at this month’s Bugs N Brews you can learn from the guru, Duane Hada.
Duane will be tying his delicious Creek Crawler craw and and discussing smallmouth fly design at the September 18 Bugs N Brews event at Rapp’s Barren Brewery in Mountain Home.
The Bugs N Brew nights, every third Wednesday day of the month, are building a solid following for excellent teaching in an awesome atmosphere.
Held at Rapp’s Barren Brewery at 1343 AR-5 in Mountain Home, in the familiar environment of what was Dale Fulton’s Blue Ribbon Flies. This is not the first time deer hair and feathers have found it’s way onto the floor.
The Rapp’s brews are delicious, you can sip a glass of wine if you prefer and there is a loyal following for Rapp’s own non-alcoholic rootbeer. Big Michael Schraeder turns out some awesome brats with ridiculously good sides for a modest donation.
The class costs $15 a head, materials provided, just bring along your vise, thread scissors and light.
But since this event is all “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.
Class starts at 6.30pm, with a preclass gathering at 6pm
