Well the fly tying season kicks off on Monday, December 5th 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 get 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).
The first session is all about clouser minnows! If you have bucktail, bring it along! Especially white and any of your favourite colours!
