Well the fly tying season kicks off on Monday, November 30th at West Park Middle School starting at 7 pm. We generally are all finished up at 9 pm. Remember that each session costs $3.00 per person. That covers the costs of the fly tying materials for the evening per person!
New fly tyers are always welcome!
What do you need to have along with you? Here are the basics:
- a fly tying vice
- sharp pair of scissors (you can cheap sharp ones at Michaels for about $8
- whip finishing tool
- a bobbin or two (to hold tying thread)
- fly tying thread: I suggest back, red, olive, orange (8/0) and the same colours in 6/0; you at times will need other colours but these are the basic colours that will get you by!
- some crazy glue (brushable type, can get at Michaels)
- dubbing twister
- hair stacker
- velcro brush
There are other materials that you may occasionally need but these will get you by! You can gather most of these materials locally (TC Outfitters, Sportsmen's Den or Wolverine (by Costco).
Our first tying session will be doing some basic nymphs that can be used on both lakes and rivers.
