This Fly-tying Course is designed to provide the student with a basic knowledge of fly tying tools, materials, patterns, and tying techniques.  We teach the course in progression beginning with simple fly patterns and steadily advance toward more complex flies allowing the students to build on their skills. In this course, students will complete 6 fly patterns over the course of three days.



If you choose to join our on-line instruction you will need your own basic fly-tying tools and materials from the list below which are necessary to tie the six patterns taught in the workshop.
