August 2018 Fly of the Month- Cathy's Super Beetle

Mason and Palmer Kasprowicz will demonstrate and assist you in tying Cathy's Super Beetle. Bring your vise and tools. Materials will be provided. Doors open around 6:30.

Cathy’s Super Beetle is an excellent beetle imitation for the terrestrial season taking place right now in our trout streams. Its general shape and silhouette allow it to be mistaken for a wide variety of beetle species. Also, the large amount of foam used in the fly gives it buoyancy through rough waters and over a longer duration of fishing.
