Tuesday Nights is The Alamo Fly Fishers weekly fly tying night when its not a formal meeting. In light of this fact I will probably be doing a a fly gallery most Wednesdays with whatever I tied the previous night.
Richard Strolis of Catching Shadows is one of my favorite fly tiers. I felt like tying small this week so I tied one of my favorite midge patterns he designed. I have also linked the tying video he did through the flies name.
