Catching a trout on a fly rod is quite an experience, catching a trout with a fly you’ve tied yourself is one of the most rewarding experiences this sport can offer. This workshop is geared towards the beginning fly tier and will cover general terminology, tool identification and application, basic materials and their uses -and then the best part - tying flies! Upon completion of the class, you'll walk away with different fly patterns that are ready to fish on our local waters!
In this course we will build upon the skills covered in the intro course and work to expand your knowledge of different patterns to fill your fly box with. Over the 2 hour clinic, we’ll introduce new techniques and materials to your fly tying knowledge base that will help you take your new hobby to the next level.
