The High Sierra Fly Casters hosts and support a wide range of service programs, including Reel Kids, Reel Recovery, and Reel Vets retreats. We typically go through 600+ flies per year! We're in a constant need of flies suitable for the programs and, hence, this challenge to tiers.
Our programs are typically held in eastern Sierra waters including both still and running waters during the Spring, Summer, and Fall seasons. Most anything you use regularly for trout in our local waters is suitable for the events. Just nothing too big or terribly small. For ideas, see our Eastern Sierra Fly Box and Fly Fishing The Sierra's Flybox. We recommend tying a pattern that within your current skill level. Feel free to contact Daniel, our tying coordinator, for advice on what to tie at <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
We have some small swag to give away to those who complete this challenge.
