Beginners Fly Tying Class

This spring we'll offer a Beginners Fly Tying class.

The class was especially designed for those who would
like to learn without investing in materials and equipment.

The club will provide the materials and loan you the tools
to explore a variety of techniques and types of flies.  The
flies are examples of their fly type and the techniques
are applicable to other like flies.

The cost is $40 for the 8 weeks of instruction.

Here's the schedule and a brief syllabus:

     3/2         Tools use and general terminology and
                             a basic wet fly
     3/9         Improved Wooly Bugger – palmering
                             and counter winding                        
     3/16         Gartside's Gurgler - fun with foam
     3/23         Clouser's Deep Minnow -  bucktail
                              handling tips                    
     3/30         Pheasant Tail Nymph - a proven fish
     4/6          Elk Hair Caddis - a durable dry fly
     4/13        Zebra midges - the most common fly
                              used on the LIR                       
     4/20         Tap's Bug - spinning deer hair

We will meet in the classroom at the Bass Pro Shop in
Broken Arrow.
From the front door it's on the second floor and back in
the right hand Corner.   Look for the restroom sign.

Class starts at 6:30 pm, but the instructor usually arrives
around 6 to set up the room.
Class usually ends by 8:45 and we're out of there by 9:00.

We have 10 sets of tools to loan, you are welcome to
bring your own, but class size is limited to 12
participants, as a lot of one-on-one assistance is
usually needed by beginners.

If you would like to participate contact Mike Shuman at:   or   918-443-9184.
