Beginner Fly Tying Classes
 
We invite you to join us on Thursday nights for an introduction to the craft of fly-tying. The world of fly-tying can be a bit overwhelming at first with walls full of flash, feathers, and hooks. We want to initiate your interest with the basics and essentials, while encouraging you to expand and release your creative side.  

The structure of our class allows those interested in fly-tying to try it once and then sign up for additional classes if they wish to continue their education. However if you know you are serious about learning the skills needed to fill your own fly boxes, we invite you to sign up for as many classes as you would like.

Each night our students will complete a couple different fly patterns that focus the fundamentals, with the occasional, more complicated techniques thrown in. If you have any other questions please feel free to contact Taylor at the River's Edge West location.
