Fly Tying Events Reminder

We still have room in Skip Morris’s Tying Nymphs Class this coming Friday see details below.

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.

Jan 26th Adrian Cortes will be demonstrating how to tie Steelhead and Atlantic Salmon Flies without a vise. Check out more details about the demo here.

March 8 and 9 the NW Fly Fishing and Fly Tying Expo will be held at the Linn County Expo Center in Albany, Oregon.
