Feb. 22nd Acadiana Bugs & Brews

Acadiana Bugs & Brews
Thursday, February 22, 2024

Pack & Paddle Outpost, 601 E. Pinhook, Lafayette
Open to the public

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, Flip Siragusa will demonstrate the "Down & Dirty" Cork Panfish Popper.  He started making these years ago, and while nothing fancy, they provide a foundation for more detailed versions. You can take one of these from start to finish including painting and gluing in under an hour.

Materials will be provided for those who wish to follow along. Bring your tools and thread - 140 or 6/0 size is fine in red or black. If you don't have tools, some are available for use during the session. Or just come and watch.  Come early and get some retail therapy in Pack and Paddle.
