Fly Tying Class With the NW Fly Anglers

Post by Bodofish » Tue Jan 29, 2019 6:20 am

Hi Guys, we're rolling into Class season. Our Fly Tying class starts on Feb 26 and goes for 6 weeks. They will be held at:
Haller Lake Community Club, 12579 Densmore Ave N, Seattle, WA 98133.
You can sign up at https://northwestflyanglers.org/classes
The cost is $85 for nonmembers and $70 for members (good plug to join the club)
Most fly shops have 1 day classes in the $125 range and you don't walk away with a box full of flies
Catching fish is a ton of fun. Catching fish on a fly that you tied with your own hands is even more fun. We’re offering beginning fly tying, a series of 6 classes taught by Eric “Dinty Moore” Olson and David Paul Williams. Students will learn two patterns each class and receive the recipe and materials for two copies of each pattern.
Each class will build on the skills learned in the previous session so by the end of the course students will be able to proficiently tie some very challenging flies. We will learn about thread control, maintaining proper thread tension and training our fingers to manipulate materials. We’ll learn about different tying materials and how to select good materials. We’ll even learn a bit about how to fish the flies we tie. Students will end up with a great selection of trout flies that will catch fish in our lakes and streams, plus a couple of saltwater flies and even a terrific topwater bass fly.
Here is a list of tying tools that students need to bring: 3/0 black thread 6/0 black thread Bobbin Bobbin threader Bodkin Hackle pliers Vise Scissors Dubbing twister Whip finisher (optional) Tying Lamp (optional) Get the best vise (pedestal or C-clamp) and scissors you can afford.
Here is the weekly tying schedule Week One Carey Special Week Two Chironomid and Woolly Bugger Week Three Pat’s Stone and Pheasant Tail Nymph Week Four Gold-Ribbed Hare’s Ear and Elk Hair Caddis Week Five Black Beetle and Muddler Minnow or Thunder Creek Minnow Week Six Compara Dun and Dun Parachute

The class is filling up and it's first come first serve. Hope to see you there.
Build a man a fire and he's warm for the night. Light a man on fire and he's warm the rest of his life!
