TU Banquet

2-3-19
My wife and I tied this box of flies to donate to the TU fund raiser banquet. The banquet will be held Feb. 9th at the Elks Club in Mtn Home
and I encourage all who can to attend.  It is a night of food, and fun as well as raffles and a live auction which raises money for
improvement and protection of our sport.
This assortment includes several colors and styles of the Anna K.  I have also included Bob Kraus's White River Special and John Berry's
Green Butt. These two patterns are a must for any good soft hackle assortment.  I hope you can come to the banquet and win these flies, if you do
I know you will enjoy fishing them as much as I do.  Good luck.

My Favorite Fly

Fly Fishing in the winter here in the twin lakes area of north arkansas is great.
There are times however when cold wet weather brings my fishing to a dead stop. In my old age I have become a fair weather fisherman so I turn to tying.
My favorite fly to fish and tie is a soft hackle. The Anna K is a soft hackle that I designed several years ago and produces well year round. 
I tie it in several colors and different materials so I can match just about any hatch and even when there dosen't seem to be a hatch I have caught
some really nice fish. The Anna K is available at several shops in the area.  I tie this fly in yellow, purple, red, orange, black,
red butt peacock and caddis green. Pictured below are a couple of my favorites and over the next few weeks I will be posting more pictures.
