-Fly Tying Classes
There are 5 Classes offered at $50 per class that are in the progression of easiest to hardest where we will tie several flies of each pattern:
(The #1 class Brassie/San Juan Worm needs to be taken first. We suggest taking them in order as they build on each skill but after the first class it isn't mandatory.)
1. Brassie/San Juan Worm
In this class we will learn skills such as dressing the hook, using wire to wrap the hook, whip finishing and how to tie two very effective nymphs. This class HAS to be taken as your first class!
In this class we learn about using hackle and selecting the right size hackle as well as applying dubbing to create the body. We will use the Palmered Hackle technique and then work with Elk Hair to create wings.
#3 Parachute Adams
In this class we will continue our work with hackle to use hackle fibers to create a tail, use dubbing to create a body and then wrap hackle around a post to create a parachute.
#4 Wooly Bugger
We will work with two different types of materials to create the body of this big streamer pattern as well as a palmered hackle on the body and finish it off with a marabou tail.
#5 Hare's Ear
The most complex of the flies we will tie we will use hare's ear fibers to create the body and hackle barb fibers to create the tail and finish it off with a gold wire ribbing.
