Lets Flig - Flig School Reminder
First, just back from the BFT Catfish Contest dinner - had a great time. Thanks Jeff/Craig (others?) for putting it together. Cookie and I are looking forward to joining into the fray next year. I think her and Violet were scheming up a new stink-bait to try on Richards shinny new boat. Enjoyed meeting some new friends. Wish I could of met you all, but am sure we will rub shoulders at some point.

Pat has confirmed the date and time of the Flig School at our place in Morgan

It is Tues Nov 19th (next Tues)

You can arrive any time after 4 PM. I will have a few table scraps warmed up to munch on (pork bombs in the smoker and such)

Likely we will actually get rolling with fligonometry around 5 and depending on how deep we go, and what people want to chat about, would likely end up around 7 PM

If you are interested, please respond, or PM me, and I will get you directions, maps and such. That will also help me get a head count for the vittles.

Looking forward to it - until then tight lines

Not sure I'm going to be able to make it, but I'll see what happens dentist appointment earlier that day... I picked up a batch of Pat's fligs last night, and boy he does a nice job on them... Really wish it wasn't so cold now for catfish, I'd love to try a Kong flig with a fillet of carp on it.. Next year I guess.. Pat mentioned they might work or mackinaw as well, so maybe I'll get to try them sooner... Thanks for putting this on, it will be a great learning adventure.. Later Jeff

Greetings all:

New member, first post and long time viewer.

OBIO rhymes with Ohio ;-)

I've long enjoyed the fishing reports and other information posted by many. I don't fish as much as many of you; have other interests and obligations. However, a little closer association with you fine folks might cure that! I will try and contribute what I can as a small payment for what I've learned from all of you.

Cowboy Pirate: I would greatly enjoy attending the FLIG seminar you are so graciously hosting. It took me a long time to figure out what a FLIG even was. I finally saw a photo, then knew.

TudeDude: Thank you in advance for offering to conduct the seminar. I enjoy making and working on my outdoor gear (tie my own flies, etc.). Not only do I appreciate you sharing this knowledge, I've also tremendously enjoyed the periodic links to specific waters/fish along with the informative fishing reports. The efforts made at presenting thorough and correct information are noted and sincerely appreciated.

I'm looking forward to meeting some of you fine folks next Tuesday evening.

OBIO

Welcome aboard. Look forward to meeting you. Glad you have benefitted from the stuff we have posted in the past and look forward to some posts from you in the future.


If you tie flies, you should be able to turn out some creditable fligs. Then ones I make with tails require about a minute in the fly tying vise, before super gluing into the foam body. Otherwise it is pretty much a simple craft almost anyone can do.


I am attaching a couple of things I have posted in the past...both for your benefit and to help cover some of the basics of what will be shown at the get-together.

I am going to regretfully decline. I have another commitment that afternoon, and I don't even fish with fligs much less make them. Have fun y'all.

Had a number of inquiries about bringing food. I should have the table scraps covered, but if you have a treat you want to bring along, I wont argue. Heck I wont turn away any chow, for that matter, that shows up to add to the feast, if you have a favorite side dish

Might be helpful to bring an extra chair just incase I miss count

It looks like I may be able to attend after all. Just to eat and hobnob, but that's half the fun anyway, right?

PM received. THANKS!

For the life of me, I canít tell what ďfligĒ stands for. What does it mean? Iíve Googled it and nothing relating to fishing pops up.

Thanks Cowboy and Cookie for hosting this - what a great turn out, great food and some great teaching from TubeDude.

We really enjoyed ourselves and meeting some new faces.

Flig is one of Pat's creations, it stands for floating jigs... Basically he attaches a chunk of dense foam on a jig hook and makes it look fishy then when you put a weight on your line the flig floats up from the bottom by the amount of line you left between the weight and the flig... It's kind of like using a marshmellow on your nightcrawler, it gets your hook off the bottom to where the fish find it... They are really pretty neat little bait delivery methods... But it's probably one of those words that you'll only hear when talking with someone that knows TubeDude... Hope that helps...

PS... Cowboy, sorry I didn't make it down to the fliggin tonight... dentist won... Later Jeff

What a great time this evening. We enjoyed putting faces and names togther and hope to spend some time fishing along side a few of them in the future. It was our pleasure to host the event. I especially appreciate the full court press that a group applied to Cookie to get her on the ice this year - you may have done it. And Pat's demo was excellent. The detail he puts into the fligs is just amazing. My only regret was Pat got out the door before I was able to raid his stash of fligs. I think he is hedging his bets for the catfish contest next year. The wiper twins also did a nice job of showing the set up.

Just all-in-all a nice evening with good people.

Cheers

My thanks to you for hosting the show-and-tell. You do good work with the vittles. Yum.


About the fligs. I am sure we will have an excuse to get together again sometime before kitty chasin' next year. I'd be glad to help you put together a starter kit...and at a steep discount. Of course, once you are "hooked" the price escalates proportionate to your degree of addiction.


I know you travel around a lot with your job. Just let me know when you might be in the Salt Lake area and you are welcome to visit my playroom.
