Fly Tying Mondays Start Monday November 30th
Fly Tying begins in about 10 days. The classes will again be at Annie L Gaetz School that is located at 32 Mitchell Avenue. The cost of each session is $3.00. The $3.00 covers the costs of materials, the facility rental and refreshments. You do need to bring your basic tying equipment. That includes your vice, bobbin, thread (black, green, brown and red 6/0 usually does the job), a sharp pair of sissors, hackle pliers, a hair stacker, a whip finishing tool and some head cement .
The sessions start at 7 p.m. and they usually go to 8:30 or 9.00 p.m.
Beginners are welcome and encouraged to attend. The experienced tyers will help mentor newcomers.
Check out the dates and presenters in previous blog posts (about two back).
We do have one important date change as well. The Phil Rowley Workshop is now on Saturday January 30th. Phil will be presenting flies from his new book for stillwaters. Phil will also have the book along for anyone who wants to purchase one.
Is anyone going to the LeRoy Hyatt Workshop this weekend? Give me a call or e-mail. Maybe we can car pool.
