Fly-Tying Workshop (Part 2 of 2)

March 12, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Why Fly Tying?

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 Workshop 

This is not like other fly tying courses. This is two, three-hour sessions on Sunday afternoons. Students need to bring their own tools and thread, but we supply all the material, including hooks. We start with the most simple pattern and progress from there. Each pattern we tie has a history of catching fish – sometimes.Fee (for part two AND part one on March 5): $45 for Riveredge members, $50 for non-members.

Class size is limited. Pre-registration required- please register online below or by calling 262-375-2715.
