Fly Tying Classes

On February 2nd we will begin the fly tying season here at 3 Rivers Angler with our first 2017 installment of Lying & Tying. The concept is simple: bring something to drink, some materials, and a vise. Tie a little, lie a little, and maybe even learn a new pattern. Experts and novices are all invited no matter your level of experience. Don't have a vice? Don't worry, you can borrow one of ours. Tying starts at 5pm and goes till the last bobbin drops. 

In addition, we will start our 2017 fly tying classes on Saturday February 4th, Fly Tying 101: Intro to Tools, Techniques and Terminology. We will cover everything from selection and use of tools, thread selection, and the basic tying skills you will need to get started in this rewarding endeavor. The class cost is $25.00 and will be limited to 6 students (minimum of 2). The class will begin at 9:00 am and will end about lunch time. All tools and materials are provided. 

The first session of Fly Tying 201: Midges and Bead Head Nymphs will be held March 2nd. Students will build on their skills from Fly Tying 101 and will learn to tie the most relevant patterns for use in East Tennessee. Fly Tying 101 is a pre-requisite for Fly Tying 201. The class cost is $25.00 and will be limited to 6 students (minimum of 2).

The first session of the third installment of our fly fishing courses for 2016, Fly Tying 301: Dry Flies, will be held on March 11th. Students will again build off of their skills learned in Fly Tying 101 and will learn to tie both a swept wing caddis style dry as well as a post wing mayfly style dry. Fly Tying 101 is  a pre-requisite for Fly Tying 301. The class cost is $25.00 and will be limited to 6 students (minimum of 2).
