Hoppers, Poppers, and Crease Flies......... Oh My

Rob G

Recommended Posts

January 22, Sunday ...(1-4 PM)... TOP WATER FLIES AND PIES. We’ll be tying some of our favorite surface flies and poppers and ordering pizza. We’ll have our Crease fly cutters, Kreb’s popper cutters, and some pre-formed popper bodies for you to work with. We’ve also got a large wide screen TV available so you won’t have to miss your NFL championship game and we will be showing Harry Murray’s DVD “Fly Fishing for Smallmouth Bass” as well.

Liberty Commons Community Center 1669 Hamilton Ave., Urbana, IL. (Not the Urbana Public Library as in the past)

Contact Rob G. for further information.



Take Interstate 74 East and get off on exit 184 and head north on hgwy 45. Take your first right onto O'brien drive and at the following T, go right which becomes the frontage road for Int. 74. which will then take you back south along the interstate. Continue on Anthony Dr. up into a small residential commons area and take a right onto Columbia Blvd but then take a quick left onto Hamilton Dr. Follow Hamilton a block or less and you will see the Community building on the left. You can also just follow the signs that direct you to the Leasing office as you enter the residential area, it's the same building.

Fred, I'll have a lot of stuff in order for you to make top waters but you can bring some flat foam or stuff to dress them up with. And of course you can come prepared to tie anything else you want and if you have questions, there will surely be someone to offer their help.

Had a real nice group of 12-13 show up for our first fly tying gathering of the year. Lots of information and techniques shared as well as a few lies : ) You can see Harry Murray in the background demonstrating how to catch a bunch of palm sized smallies, oh well, you know it wasn't a staged DVD with that size of fish being caught and released. Oh and how did those beautiful trout flies end up at this thing. See ya in three weeks at the February tie when we'll be creating furled and more standard tied leaders.
