Jan. 25th Acadiana Bugs & Brews

Acadiana Bugs & Brews
Thursday, January 25, 2024

6:00pm meeting
Pack & Paddle Outpost, 601 E. Pinhook, Lafayette

Acadiana Bugs & Brews is an open community fly tying event usually held the fourth Thursday of each month. We are a group of independent tiers who gather for the enjoyment of tying and to share stories and cold beer. Though not affiliated with Acadiana Fly Rodders, several club members are usually on hand and happy to assist any beginners.

This month, Darrin Lee will demonstrate "The Bug", a pattern he was supposed to show at the AFR meeting earlier this month. Due to illness he had to cancel, so attendees tied a different fly. But Darrin is back and healthy, and will demonstrate his fly for Bugs & Brews.

As always, this event is open to the public.  Bring your tools if you have any.  If not, we have tools available for use during the session.  Or just come and watch.  Come early and get some retail therapy in Pack and Paddle.

January 18th meeting - "The Bug"

AFR monthly meeting
Thursday, January 18,  2024

6:00pm meeting
Pack & Paddle Outpost, 601 E. Pinhook, Lafayette

This month, Darren Lee will tie one of Gunnar Brammer's streamers, "The Bug".  It's a great small fly that can mimic a lot of prey like a darker baitfish or crawfish.  It's tied with a couple different pheasant feathers and some flashabou dubbing. 

Guests are welcome.  Bring your vise and tying tools if you wish to tie along.  Materials will be provided.

Come early and get in a little retail therapy at Pack & Paddle.
