Looking for a tying class this winter?

Post by Craig Hardt » Mon Nov 23, 2015 2:24 pm

Thinking of taking up fly tying as hobby this winter or would like to learn some new patterns?

Starting in January the Evergreen Fly Fishing Club will be presenting their annual 12-week fly-tying class. Starting with the basics, this class will teach up to intermediate skills in fly tying. Each week you will be taught a proven fly pattern that works in the Pacific Northwest. You will also get tips on fly selection, including how and when to use the fly from twelve of the best fly tiers and fly fishers in the club.

If you’re new to tying the instructors and other seasoned tiers are happy to sit alongside you and help you through each pattern. Tying materials and hooks needed to tie 2 or 3 flies each week will be provided, along with written instructions for each fly.

You will need to bring your own fly tying vise and tools (bobbin, thread, scissors, hair stacker, head cement, etc.). We will email you a list of necessary items prior to the first class. The club will have a few vises and tool sets that could be used if you are just getting started and don’t know or have what you’ll need.

When: Wednesdays 6:30pm - 8:30pm, January 6 through March 23
Location: Art Room, Rosehill Community Center, Mukilteo, WA
Cost: $60

Register online (https://apm.activecommunities.com/cityo ... eorec/Home" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;), by telephone at 425.263.8180, or in person at Rosehill Community Center.

Regards,
Craig

At 5 bucks a class, that is a very good deal.
Thanks for sharing.
