Acadiana Bugs & Brews
Thursday, July 25, 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. Though not affiliated with Acadiana Fly Rodders, several club members are usually on hand to assist any beginners. Bring your favorite beverage to Bugs & Brews, and enjoy a cold one while tying and sharing fishing tales.

This month, Darin Lee returns to demonstrate Bob Popovic's Bulkhead Deceiver. It's a great suspending baitfish pattern that catches fish, and is surprisingly simple to tie. Darin will introduce some techniques for tying with bucktail.  

Tiers are then welcome to tie their whatever flies they wish, but if interested in tying the Bulkhead Deceiver, materials will be available.  For beginners, tools are available for use during the session.

For all these events, come early and get in a little retail therapy at our fine sponsors in Pack & Paddle.
