Thread: Flies for Reel Recovery Outing?

  1. #1

    Default Flies for Reel Recovery Outing?

    I have asked a couple time in the past and have got great response from FAOL tiers. I thought I would ask once more.

    I am on of the Arkansas State Coordinators for Reel Recovery in Arkansas. We have a upcoming retreat in October. If you don't know what Reel Recovery is, click the links. We are short some flies and I thought I would see if any of you would like to donate. The flies would be used for a Reel Recovery Outing in Arkansas on the White and/or Norfork rivers. Any flies not used there, would be passed along to future Reel Recovery outings around the country.

    Most of our fishing this time of year is nymphs etc. There may be a little dry fly fishing with a few midge hatches. Flies needed are:
    scuds
    midges
    sowbugs
    soft hackles
    woolly buggers (not a lot) used sparingly really
    PT's/copper johns/hares ear and variations

    This is a great charity and the flies would be used by some great guys in need of a break from their battle with cancer.

    PM or email me if you are interested and I'll return the message with my mailing address. I would need them in my hands by October 18th.

    Just one more note . . . The flies I receive are used at the Arkansas retreat. After the retreat, the flies sent on to future retreats along with the rest of the equipment. When I did this a few years ago, when the equipment made it back to Arkansas, a few flies from FAOL were still there. They will be used for Reel Recovery!

    Thanks again!

    Hi Wayne,

    Count me in for a dozen pts or GRHEs.


    John52948, what size pts or GRHEs should I tie? Do they need to be bead heads, etc? Please advise.

    Thanks and regards,

    Gandolf
