Fly Fishers Round Table
January 20, 1-5pm. Ronn Lucas, Sr. is an artist who
continually explores the boundaries of fly tying processes. His
novel and compelling approach to fly tying materials combined with
attention to detail and craftsmanship make his flies beautifully
unique. Please join Ron as he explains the tying moves that give
his flies a special style and grace. Pictured at right are
four Ron Lucas, Sr. steelhead flies that are both
traditional in construction
yet refreshingly unique in proportion. Your mind asks, "But
will they fish? Your heart answers, "you know damn well
that they will...gotta' tie some and find out! "
Sandy River, Oregon
The Sandy River in northwestern Oregon is undoubtedly one of the best
maintained urban rivers in the world. It is our home water.
The Fly Fishing Shop is located in the Sandy River basin. Recent
management emphasis has been to maintain many parts of the Sandy drainage
in a wild condition conducive to rehabilitating its divers populations of
native salmonids. All wild fish within the basin are catch and
release. There is evidence that juvenile fish populations are
increasing. The future looks good.
Because of the overwhelming
demand and an extensive waiting list left over from our February 8-Hour
School, (filled in one hour) we are offering a March School:
