Get a jump on Spring Fly Tying with this Workshop offered by Skip Morris and The Caddis Fly.
Skip Morris, author of FLY TYING MADE CLEAR AND SIMPLE, THE ART OF TYING THE NYMPH, TROUT FLIES FOR RIVERS, and WESTERN RIVER HATCHES, along with nine other fly-fishing books, will sit with no more than ten local fly tiers and together tie some of Skip’s favorite nymph patterns. During the three hours of demonstration and instruction (and a little kidding around) with Skip at your elbow helping and encouraging you, you’ll improve your tying skills and knowledge with techniques you already use and some fascinating ones you may not have explored. Special techniques you’ll learn in the class: making distinct and supple flat-feather legs, making a fly-body of several glass beads under a haze of shaggy dubbing, tying a tiny nymph, making a nymph thorax with a metal bead blended into it, forming a smooth foundation for a nymph-body, and much more.
Skip will give you a handout with the fly patterns and their dressings.
The date, again, is Friday January 18, from 6:30 to 9:30pm. The fee is $75. Call The Caddis Fly Angling Shop and register at 541-342-7005.
