Congratulation to Jon Fiolek for receiving the 2016
Lord Of The Fly award for his Bad Ass Minnow fly.

I am honored to have been chosen to receive the lord of the fly award this year for the creation of the B.A.M. fly “Bad Ass Minnow”. The B.A.M. fly, as it has been named, has over time evolved into a dressed up version of the traditional Black Nosed Dace. Over the years I have tried several different colors, materials, and designs trying to come up with an effective go to trout streamer. Persistence finally paid off with the addition of  purple polar chenille. This fly works outstanding on steel head and has produced small mouth bass as well. I highly recommend adding this fly to you’re arsenal.

If you have not been to the clubhouse recently, think about coming out when you can. There are always plenty of helpful people who can assist you with any fly-fishing or fly-tying questions. Also consider presenting a demonstration for the members. Basic through advanced demonstrations are welcomed.
