Mike Shuman has again scheduled the popular
Fly Tying Classes
8 consecutive Wednesday evenings
March 2nd - April 20th
Bass Pro Shop meeting room
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
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
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.
