Upcoming Fly Tying Classes

Tuesday, December 8 at 6 pm: Introduction to Fly Tying

In this class, which generally runs a little over an hour, we learn the very basics of tying flies. We will tie two woolly buggers, which you will get to keep at the end of the class. All tools and materials provided. This class is limited to three participants so that we can maintain social distancing protocols in the shop. Masks will be required.

Wednesday, December 9 at 6 pm: Beyond the Bugger

For those who have taken our introductory class or have a little experience tying and want to take the next steps, this class is for you. We will build on the techniques learned tying the woolly bugger and attempt some other slightly more difficult flies, which may include elk hair caddis, hare’s ear nymph, pheasant tail nymph or some other slightly more complex flies. Materials and tools will be provided. This class is limited to three participants so that we can maintain social distancing protocols in the shop. Masks will be required.

Thursday, December 17 at 6 pm: Introduction to Articulated Streamers

Articulated streamers can catch some big fish, and they are very fun to tie! We will go over the basics of tying articulated streamers, including common materials, basic fly design and proportions, and how to make the connection between the hooks or shanks. This class will be held virtually over Zoom. You will need your own tools. I can also put together a package of all the materials you will need to tie a few streamers for a small fee that can be picked up at the shop or mailed to you.
