2019 Beginner Fly Tying Class

Christmas Gift? New Years resolution? Just plain curiosity? Whatever your reason may be we want you to join us for our winter fly tying class and see what it's all about.


One night a week we will provide tools and materials to introduce each student to the fundamentals of fly tying. From adding and wrapping materials, to the dreaded "Whip Finish," these classes will give you the confidence to start tying your own bugs for the water. 


Each night we will walk through the steps to tie couple different fly patterns ranging from nypmhs and drys, to a fuzzy streamer or two. These patterns will change each week to allow for students to attend multiple classes and learn a wide range of patterns to fill their boxes. If you have your own tools and vise we encourage you to bring them to each class and learn on the equipment you intend to tie with. 


If you have any other questions please feel free to contact Taylor at the River's Edge West location.
