This is our regularly scheduled online fly-tying program that takes place on the 4th Thursday of each month. The Fly-tying Forum provides tyers with an opportunity to increase their skills. Open to fly-tiers of all skill levels, the fly patterns change each month as a way to encourage learning various new tying techniques and development of tying skills. This month we will be tying two smallmouth bass patterns, including the clouser crayfish and mighty mite hellgrammite. Participants registered for this program will be responsible for supplying their own materials, or picking them up at the Pechmann Center's drop box.
