Bill White Fly Tying Competition

The Flatland Fly Fishers have been doing an annual Bill White Fly Tying Competition since 2015. The term competition is used lightly in this case. It is a fun tying competition that anyone in the club can submit a fly pattern for and the winner will be determined by club members votes. The fly pattern image above was drawn by Bill White. He was a long time club member who was a teacher and enjoyed teaching fly fishing and tying.
