Fly Tying Classes

We will start our 2017 Fall fly tying classes on Tuesday, October 3rd, with 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 $40.00 and will be limited to 6 students (minimum of 2). The class will begin at 6:00 pm and will end around 8 pm. All tools and materials are provided. 

In addition, on Thursday, October 12th, we will host our first Fall 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.

The first session of Fly Tying 201: Midges and Bead Head Nymphs will be held November 7th. 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 $40.00 and will be limited to 6 students (minimum of 2).

The first session of the third installment of our fly tying courses for Fall 2017, Fly Tying 301: Dry Flies, will be held on November 14th. 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 $40.00 and will be limited to 6 students (minimum of 2).
