Thursday Night Live

Thursday Night Live Fly Tying started four years ago, when Fly Fishing Bow River Outfitters wanted to combine their love of craft beer and fly tying into a single event.  Since it is impossible for everyone to attend in person the event evolved into a live weekly streaming production – free, relaxed and welcome to all! Why can’t every day be Thursday?

Thanks to Tim Hepworth and Dana Lattery for sending us a few of their favourite patterns from season 4.  You can check out the recipes for the Foam is Home Stone, Complex Twist Bugger, Chubby Chernobyl and Foamulator in the all new Summer issue.  Here are a couple bonus patterns to try in the mean-time! Check out more Thursday Night Live Fly Tying HERE!
