Tying the Traditional Cape Breton Salmon Fly

Thursday October 17th , 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM

Wilson United Church Hall – 1625 West Big Intervale Road, Margaree Centre
Hosted by: Cape Breton Angler's Association
Price: $10

The event will include a brief presentation on the history of the traditional Cape Breton Atlantic Salmon fly and trace its origins to Irish and Scottish flies developed on the rivers where sport fishing for Atlantic salmon was born. Cape Breton fly tiers from past to present, and their flies, will be profiled. Early Cape Breton fly tiers did not have access to the exotic fly tying materials used to tie the original Scottish and Irish flies but instead turned to farm and forest for natural materials to craft them. Participants will receive an introduction to fly tying by volunteers from the Cape Breton Anglers Association and each participant will tie their own traditional Cape Breton Salmon fly such as the "Ross Special" or "Brown Bomber".

You may want to arrive early to enjoy a nice homemade "Margaree Lunch" (11:30-1)
