Phil Rowley Seminar On Dubbing Loops Tricks And Tips

Recommended Posts

We had an excellent presentation from Phil Rowley on Saturday April 6. In all there were 16 of us at the session. Phil kept us on track and on time, and we learned 8 or 9 patterns that used dubbing loops in various ways.

 

I finally learned how to use the Magic Tool, which I bought when it came out, tried once, and then put it away. And we built a Cal Bird style dubbing tool.

 

I learned a lot, and had my moments of frustration, not so much with the dubbing methods, but with tying on two goose biots at once on the Prince nymph.

 

Thanks to Phil for an entertaining and enlightening day. Thanks also to Dave Towers who had a big part in organizing the event.

I'm pleased to hear it went well.

I would like to have attended, but being Mozart Requiem concert week, my time Saturday was limited to personal errands that had to be postponed to account for two rehearsals and two performances. I thoroughly enjoyed my first performances with the Richard Eaton Singers. The concerts went well with full houses both Friday and Saturday at the Jube. The Journal review treated us kindly.

I hope next time Phil does one of these it doesn't conflict and I can attend.

Yes, it was in the newsletter and posted in the Calendar.

That said, we do have an Upcoming Events topic in the Forum,So yes, we should in future remember to post announcements like that there.

I just did so for the Beginner Fly Tying Seminar and Introduction to FLy Fishing Seminar

My bad, but like someone said my business doesn't allow me to get to to many meetings, and newsletters I dont see because I bypass the front page. Bad habit or just getting down to the real stuff. But good idea about posting it in the Up Coming Events.....it just all about communication at different intersect points. I would even like things sent to me by email, because then I get it direct to my hip any where in the world that I might be travelling for work.

Well maybe I should. There is lots of room for improvement. Last time I went to a beginners course it was due to more of an interest in how that individual taught the course as opposed to what I would learn about tying flies. Well to my surprise I learned plenty on both fronts. How to teach and communicate better as an instructor and I picked up several good pointers on tying as well. On another forum I have someone (several people) cirtiquing my flies that are entered into a Fly of the Month contest. And these guys and gals are very helpful on making me a better tier in many ways. It is cool to learn and see how others address different techniques. Thats is something I can appreciate. I dont like it when I post a fly and everyone tells me it is beautiful, especially when I know better. To me it almost comes across as patronizing especially if they are a quality tier and that doesnt improve my skills. But some people just dont know better and thats OK.
