Flig School Invite
I am offering a venue and time for anyone who might want to attend TDs Flig School for Novice's.

I can host it ANY day of the week of Nov 18th. Likley later afternoon to early evening would be best - my vacation time runneth thin.

I live In Peterson, which is in between Morgan and Ogden (across the Weber River from Mt Green). Should be about middle ground for a lot of ya.

As a bonus, will fire up the Smoker and Dutch oven and feed whomever wants to get educated. Of course significant others are welcome, Cookie would likely love the testosterone levels to be moderated in her favor. Buckwheat can keep any kids entertained in his basement room full of all the electronics things that seem to obsess that generation.

No biggie if it wont work, but figured I would post a formal offer

You can PM or post directly here

Of course final date/time will need to be agreed to by TD. He is aware I am posting this invite.

TD will have to answer as to his exact topics, but i know it will be heavy into the manufacturing process. I am sure it would not take much coaxing to have it end with rigging and running. . I can throw open the swim spa cover and let him do live action show and tell. That ought win me a few points with Cookie.

Yessir. Have fligs, will travel.


As I mentioned in another post, this session will be a basic fligology session. How to rig and fish them. And some of the basics on making them yourself. Will do some painting but advanced techniques of painting, glittering, adding spinner blades and all that will likely be individual sessions with the few who decide to get into it themselves.



In past get-togethers for jig-making, fly tying and rod building most of those who show up are more curious than serious about really getting into making their own stuff. And that is fine. If nothing else they get a better understanding of the craft, and what goes into making the goodies. They usually also learn a bit more about technique and fishing in general. That's gotta be worth the price of admission (free). At the very least it is a chance to get together with fellow BFT wackos and talk some fishing smack.


Gratitude to the Pirate for his generous offer.

I can also take 5 min and show you how I add glow powder to dodgers and this will work on jigs.

If you can't make it, you are always welcome to visit my home playroom. We were going to get together last year to play with some ideas for koke fligs. But before we could set a play date you took off fishing for kokes all summer and you were lost to the civilized world. I have some new things I think will work for you.


I also use glow powder on jigs...and even fligs. I made some last year for ice fisherfolks. Also made some up in the larger sizes for night catters and walleye fans. See pics.

It is a good thing fishing for Kokes is over need to start saving money for next year

plus my dad who is 99 and living with me, has been taking care of his self , but he needs me more now, just found out he has a bad hart and chronic kidney disease.

I love that guy and will stop fishing to take care of him.

I would consider making the drive - Just let me know the date. Maybe the stars will line up that night and I can make it. Sounds fun.

If we can get someone from Utah County to come up with a venue for us it will make it easier on those from the more southerly areas.



I will be glad to hold more than one session if we have a few folks from each of the main population areas.

I'm interested in attending. Pat nailed it- sounds like a good way to see if I would like to move from curious to serious.

I also have an interest in going Fliggin Dutch & Smoker eats. Wink It will give me an opportunity to meet some of the folks around our part of the world, however, some I do know some. I have the date marked down but it wouldn't hurt to bump this thread as a reminder later as time gets close.

I'm thinking. I'm sure we can come up with someplace to do it. Give me a few days.

Be great if you could make it. I'm sure you could download some personal experience that would be of value to the newbies.

When it gets a bit closer, I will post a new thread, with a confirmed date and time and final details, so we can get a headcount. Until then - tight lines - and look forward to see ya on the water or at the cowboy-pirate homestead - whichever comes first.

I will be bringing along my boxes of goodies...with a lot of things I have not really publicized yet. Always working on new ideas...some better than others.


Had a couple of ideas for koke fligs earlier in the year and was bouncing the ideas off liketrolling. But then he got busy fishing and we never had a chance to hammer anything out. However, I will have some options for look-see at the gathering and would welcome your input and suggestions.

I'd like to attend as well, but I've got a possible TDY that I'm supposed to attend that week, however, they don't know if they have budget to send me out yet or not.... Sooo I'm iffy on whether I can commit... I want to, just don't know if I'll have to be out of town that week or not... Thanks so much for putting this together... and hopefully I can make it... Jeff

ALL - sounds like there is enough interest to start to firm up a plan. I am thinking Tues, Nov 19th. "Meet an Munch" starting around 6 with TDs song and dance shortly thereafter (6:30ish) until he is done, or everyone leaves, whichever comes first.

I am open to a differnt date that week, if someone really wants to come , but a tues wont work for ya.

TD is going to help with sharing more specifics (like a map to my place) when we get a bit closer.

As noted I will add a new post closer to the date as a reminder. Look forward to the education and socialization.

Cheers

Nice of you to off up your Home. I would be interested to attend as one of the Curious group. When time gets closer, will you or Tube Dude give a list of what supplies we may need?

Re: [BURLEY] Flig School Invite In reply to
You will need to bring nothing to the first session. But something to take notes might be helpful. I will bring all of my stuff and introduce each item as I go along. You can make notes or refer to the writeup I have put together on Making Fligs. I am attaching a copy here, but it will be undergoing some updates and revisions. Hail progress...or to hail with it.



Here is a brief list of the materials I will be using.
Foam sheets...high density EVA foam. 1" and 1.5"
Asst. drill bits for cutting foam plugs.
Drill and rotary tool...for cutting and shaping plugs.
Razor blades or other sharp blades for cutting foam
Super glue for securing hooks inside foam
Hooks...plain and with tails.
Tail material, thread and fly tying vise
Paints: white, yellow chartreuse, green chartreuse,
bright green, hot orange, hot red, black
Glitters: white, silver, blue, disco yellow
Finishes: Clear gloss, UV final coat


For those who decide to ease (or jump) into making their own stuff, we can hold follow up meetings or group workshops...or you can visit my playroom for one-on-one advanced tutorials. A lot of the questions that develop as you go along can be easily answered by PMs and/or photos.


It ain't rocket science but it does take a bit of basic manual dexterity and creativity. My earliest attempts were VERY crude but the fish still voted for them. That encouraged me to keep doing better.
