2014 Beginner Fly Tying Classes
Sign-ups are being taken for the 2014 Beginning Fly Tying class, for members, taught by Betty Smith-Lambert. This year the classes will run on five consecutive Saturdays, beginning January 11. The cost of the class is only $25 and includes the use of all the tying devices and all the materials needed to complete the class.
This is a great way to see if tying your own flies is a hobby you wish to pursue.
There will be a sign-up sheet at the December meeting (Christmas Party). You may also contact Betty at 838-5914 to sign up or ask questions
2014 Intermediate Fly Tying
(Skill level – can tie without wrapping your material hand forefinger to the hook)
By: Dan Ferguson
I’m happy to report that intermediate fly tying is taking shape. I know those that have already signed up are particularly glad to hear this. We will be spinning, trimming, shaping, learning cripples, doing bullet heads, tackling soft hackles, doing some salt water, steelhead and a couple very interesting surprise patterns!
This year there will be more discussion on how and when to fish these critters we tie. The tying sessions will be Thursday evenings 7 – 9, January 2,9,16,23,30 and February 6. We will meet at the Wildlife Council Building at 6116 Market (2 blocks South of Francis).
The cost for the six evenings of fun and learning will be 35, that’s if we have a minimum of 20 sign up and PAY. We will collectively purchase all of the tying materials, bundle the materials needed for each pattern and have a packet of each pattern materials for the tiers. The tiers would need to bring the basic materials that anyone taking this class should have, a vise, tying tools and thread. The fee increase will allow us to purchase the exotic materials. The change is also contingent on enough volunteers to do the packaging work. Hey, we can have a put it all together party!
You can sign up at the December Pot Luck but for planning purposes we need to know NOW!
