2017- 2018 NEWS of the HAFFT

Tommy Kee gave a great presentation about saltwater flyfishing in the Bahamas on Novemebr 28. There were many tantalizing pictures of huge fish, sunny blue sky, clear water, and sand. 

On Tuesday November 14 Peter Iannozzo demonstrated a few streamer patterns showing us some great tips while tying classics like Muddler and Zonker patterns.

John French led a great workshop on rod and reel maintenance on October 24th. We dismantled and cleaned reels, line/leader/backing connections, and rods while discussing do's and don'ts, tools, etc. 

Rob Clarke visited on October 10th and demonstrated a few oh his favourite "late season" hairwing steelhead patterns. Punctuated with tying and fishing tips, Rob's demonstration was entertaining and educational........like always!

On Tuesday September 26, Rick Crawford led a discussion of fishing small streams with small dry flies for small trout. Rick then went on to demonstrate the tying of three of his favourite small dry flies he uses for small stream fishing.
