Bust those vises out of summer retirement — it’s time to get tying again! Hareline Dubbing in Monroe, OR is sponsoring a quarterly fly tying contest for Oregon Fly Fishing Blog readers. For the first round of the contest, we would like to see your best summer steelhead pattern, either an original or your own spin on a classic pattern.
Drop off two finished flies at The Caddis Fly Shop, along with paperwork that includes the fly pattern name, material list, your name and address, and either email or phone number for contact. You will not get the flies back — one will go to Hareline and one will go to the shop. Bob Borden and the folks from Hareline Dubbin will be the judge of the fly patterns, along with the crew from Oregon Fly Fishing Blog.
If you are not local, please send your flies in the mail to the shop.
The prize for this contest is the full spectrum of Crystal Flash — Yup. One of every single color Hareline makes.
Your patterns are due August 1st, so get tying!
