Introduction to Fly Tying Class with The Blue Quill Angler in Evergreen, CO
Did you know that there’s a lot more to fly fishing than casting your line in waters throughout the picturesque scenery offered by Colorado Mountains? Tying your own flies provides satisfaction and a deeper understanding of the hatch along with much more that will help you be more productive on the water. This is what we’d like to introduce beginners to in our Introduction to Fly Tying Class at The Blue Quill Angler. In this class, you’ll learn the basic fly tying techniques necessary to tie wet and dry flies along with nymphs and streamers. We’ll focus on the most effective Rocky Mountain fly patterns with instruction in the basic skills and techniques to provide the novice fly tier an ability to tie hundreds of different fly patterns. This is a series of five two-hour classes hosted at our shop in Evergreen every Tuesday evening.
Do I Need to Bring Anything for the Introduction to Fly Fishing Class at The Blue Quill Angler?
We’ll provide everything you need for this class, so you’ll only need to bring yourself. If you occasionally wear glasses or corrective lenses, you may want to bring them since flies can be small. We’ll provide the vice, fly tying tools, hooks, and materials, but you’re welcome to bring your own if you’d like. This comprehensive Introduction to Fly Tying is only $125 per person which is a great deal for all five classes. What’s more, each attendee can enjoy a 15% discount throughout our entire selection of fly tying materials, tools, and books.
