We begin the season with fly-tying because the weather is too cold and the water is too stiff for good fly-fishing. Who should be taking these tying classes? Well, it could be you. You may have been fly-fishing and buying your flies, but always wondered what it would be like to catch a fish on flies you tied yourself. I can tell you it is a fantastic feeling when a fish gulps a fly you have tied – the ultimate fly-fishing experience. Or maybe you are planning on taking the beginner fly-fishing class. Many who do, take the tying classes to help understand which flies represent what to which fish. In other words, if you are thinking fly-fishing you should be thinking fly-tying as well. Get a jump on the ultimate experience.
Fly Tying for Beginners Series
Sunday, February 3rd and 10th, 12:30-3:30pm
This fly-tying class is for those of you who have never tied before and want to learn the basics – the tools and how to use them. Then tie several simple flies that will catch fish. This class will consist of two Sunday classes, from 12:30 to 3:30 each day.
Fee: $45 for Riveredge members, $50 for non-members.
Class size is limited. Pre-registration required.
Also, know that the State of Wisconsin, because we do fish in some of our classes, requires you to have a fishing license. RNC presumes you know this and have obtained your license prior to the start of class.
Due to class size limits, pre-registration with pre-payment for all classes is required.
