Join fly tying guru Jay Nicholas this coming Sunday the 26th of January for a fly tying class.

Two classes focussing on steelhead flies are being offered:  

Introduction to Tying Steelhead Flies – 8:30-12pm -
The morning class will help tyers who have been focusing on trout flies to bridge the gap to tying their own steelhead flies. This class requires basic tying skills and will allow the novice tyer to step up to steelhead techniques and produce flies that will catch steelhead.
Cost $25

Advanced Winter Steelhead Flies 1:30-5pm
The afternoon class is for tyers who have already mastered basic steelhead patterns and will emphasize techniques and skills involved in crafting more complex flies using more materials and composite dubbing loops.
Cost $25

Both classes will practice tying with tubes, shanks, trailers, composite loops, and modern synthetics.

Materials will be provided and participants will compete 3 new flies ready to fish.
