Fly of the Month

These are the fly patterns our members have chosen for our "Fly of The Month" fly tying contest.  Cornhusker Fly Fisher Members bring their best rendition of the assigned "Fly of the Month" to that month's meeting, and the present members vote on their favorite!  A photo of the month's winning fly will be posted once a winner is chosen.
