There aren't many things better in the sport of fly fishing than catching a fish on a fly that you tied yourself. If tying flies is something you’ve always wanted to do but you never knew where to start - look no further. Spread across four consecutive Wednesday evenings, this course is designed for and taught to those who have little to no experience with tying flies. We’ve put together a curriculum that covers four different flies and will have you learning a different pattern each night. The flies that we have selected for this course are perfect for beginning tiers and are also very effective on Michigan waters. Our aim is for you to leave here with not only some great flies that YOU tied, but also the knowledge of why you tied them in the way that you did and how to fish them confidently. Class size is limited to 6 spots to ensure that very close attention can be paid to each student.
Included with the course:
