Flies & Pies

Flies and Pies

During the off-season we have several meetings were we bring in local fly tyers to share some of the patterns that bring them success in this area. All ages and skill levels are welcome and we will provide tools and materials for the group.  You’re also welcome to bring your own if you have them. In addition to the fly tying, we’ll also have a stack of pizzas to enjoy and fun raffles.

Please check the Events Page often and Like us on Facebook to see when the next scheduled Flies & Pies will take place. All Flies & Pies meetings will be held at the Orvis Fly Fishing School in Manchester, VT. We hope to see you there!

Pies & Flies – Hendrickson Patterns

During a recent Pies & Flies event, Shawn Brillon shared his secrets for tying perfect Hendrickson patterns.  Hendricksons are one of the premier hatches in this region and one of the best times to catch big, wild trout on the Battenkill.  The hatch usually occurs in early- to mid-May.

Exhibit A – a nice Battenkill brown being released after taking a Hendrickson spinner.
