In this class, we’ll focus on fly tying techniques specific to streamers. We’ll tie single-hook flies during the first evening and articulated patterns during our second evening session. Other areas of focus include building bodies using a variety of materials, building heads, weighting flies appropriately, and proportioning flies in order to create fly profiles that match the type of forage that we’re attempting to imitate.

This class is limited to 6 students, so pre-registration is necessary. Our Streamer Fly Tying Class will take place on two consecutive Thursday evenings, March 7th and 14th, from 6:00-9:00pm. The cost of the class is $125.

We’ll provide the vice, fly tying tools, hooks, and materials, but you’re welcome to bring your own if you’d like. If you occasionally wear glasses or corrective lenses, you may want to bring them since flies can be small. What’s more, each attendee can enjoy a 15% discount throughout our entire selection of fly tying materials, tools, and books. This way, it’s even easier to start tying your own flies after learning our streamer fly tying techniques.

Disclaimer: This is NOT an introductory fly tying class. This class is designed for intermediate to advanced fly tiers who are interested in learning streamer tying techniques. Students should be comfortable with starting and whip finishing thread, wrapping and applying a variety of materials using proper proportions, and using fly tying tools.

For those interested in learning how to tie flies, we will be offering introductory classes, which will cover all of the basic techniques that you’ll need to get started with tying flies.
