Tippet: Disco Flies, F3T Helps Local Theatres, Idaho Trout, Bristol Mine Permitting May Get More Oversight

  • MidCurrent gear editor Kirk Deeter theorizes on what could become the next big thing in fly tying:  fluorescent flies.  The first impulse might be to laugh the concept off, but there may be something to it, writes Deeter.
  • Offering their patrons an experience unique to watching a movie at home or a typical theatre, the Art Theatre in Long Beach has done well as a niche theatre thanks to shows like the Fly Fishing Film Tour.
  • Idaho fly-fishing guide Skooter Gardiner will give a presentation on the seven trout species that inhabit Idaho rivers on Tuesday, March 6.  The native Idahoan’s presentation is being sponsored by the Hemingway Chapter of Trout Unlimited.
  • An Alaska Senate committee held the first hearing concerning a bill introduced by Sen. Hollis French (D-Anchorage) that proposes additional legislative oversight to permitting process of the Pebble Mine Project of Bristol Bay.  Opponents of the mine are in support of the bill.

    Regarding Kirk Deeter’s fluorescent flies–I think most fly fishers understand that adding flash to fly patterns is nothing new. However, I think this idea is sort of “summed up & culminated” with the inception of Martin Bawden & Anthony Giaquinto Jr’s Firebug Midge patterns:

    The design of these patterns focuses on the Disco/Zebra Midge style of attractor “trigger point” patterns that Kirk Deeter & Steve Parrott illustrate.
