The Guest Speaker on 22nd November 2018 was Caroline Emmet. Caroline is an Editor of the Fly Dresser, the journal of the Fly Dressers’ Guild which is published quarterly.
Caroline tied a number of flies, predominantly emergers based on the use of peccary quills, CDC and Elk hair. The peccary quill is a thick quill sourced from the Peccary, a small pig-like hoofed mammal with stiff quills that have alternate black/dark and cream segments. When tied as a body, a single quill creates dark and cream coloured sections reminiscent of buzzers. She also tied a beetle pattern with a foam back and several Caddis/Sedge patterns using CDC and Elk hair.
