Tie one on…a fly, that is!

You don’t see many fly fishermen around the lake at D’Arbonne, but our parish and area are full of bayous, rivers and lakes that are perfect for fly fishing. If you’d like to learn more about how, when, where and why you should fly fish, there’s a good chance for you on Friday, Sept. 19 from 6-8 p.m. at the Union Parish Library. And you don’t even have to read a book…

There will be a class on fly fishing taught by Tom Cathey of Monroe. Tom lives in Monroe on Bayou DeSiard, where he is in or flyon the water most every day either fishing or taking pictures. He was raised fishing all over North Louisiana on lakes, ponds and streams for bream, crappie, bass and catfish. He started fly fishing around 1960 for bream on Saline Lake near Winnfield, La.

He is a District 2 Certified Hunters Education Instructor (LDWF), Fly Fishing Instructor (LDWF – BOW Program), and Certified Sporting Clays Instructor (SCA). He is an avid salt fly fisherman for Redfish and Speckled Trout from Florida to Texas. Stream fisherman for Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout and Smallmouth Bass in Arkansas and southern Missouri. He fishes in ponds, lakes and bayous in Louisiana for bream, crappie and largemouth bass. He also ties all of his own trout, bream and bass flies since 1996.
