2. Wes’s new and very popular Ninja Chironomid pupa (link to background info)

note:  Just received this on Feb. 7th:  Hey Wes, just back from two days at Pyramid Lake. And the Ninja was again my top fly.  Landed a dozen with largest hitting eleven pounds.  Other guys were also catching fish but my Ninja by far had the most grabs and it garnered a lot of attention.  Thanks again.

2. Tying and fishing a midge (chironomid pupa) rig:  Personal recommendations for arrangement, knots, knot tools, tippet, indicator, and storage rig.


Since most of the Winter Tying sessions concentrate on river flies, this is an opportunity for lake and reservoir anglers and those wanting to learn stillwater flies and techniques.

Fee for the class is $5 to cover supplied materials and room rental costs.

Open to Central Oregon Flyfishers members and anglers from other clubs on a one-time basis.
