Beginning Fly Tying Class – Week 1

January 9, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PST

| Free – $90

The Beginning Fly Tying Class is taught by members of the Washington Fly Fishing Club. You will learn to tie 7 trout fly patterns, as well as receiving personal instruction on useful fly tying skills.

The class tuition is free for WFFC Members and $80 Non-Members that can be applied to become a Washington Fly Fishing Club Member if you choose to do so. Each student will be given a well written and illustrated, published Fly Tying Manual and a personal copy of a DVD showing close-ups of each fly as it is being tied.

The class sessions consist of watching a video of each fly being tied followed by hands-on tying with class instructors helping you personally to learn the necessary tying skills. Each successive fly that you tie has been selected to build on the skills learned from tying the previous flies.

Homework assignments will help you perfect your skills and fill your fly boxes with commonly used flies. The skills you learn will prepare you for tying many popular fly patterns for your fishing enjoyment.

A fly tying tool/vise kit ($45) and an extensive material kit ($90) for the 7 fly patterns can be purchased when when you signup and will be given to you at the first class session. They will also be available for purchase (Cash or Checks only) at the first, class session. You may provide your own; however, we highly recommend these kits as an easy and economical way to get started.

The class is taught in a classroom at the Evergreen Covenant Church on Mercer Island. This year there are 4 class sessions beginning on Thursday January 9th from 7 to 9 PM and continuing each Thursday evening through January 30. The class size is limited to twelve participants.

Signup today to ensure that you will have a spot in January 9th 2020 class, which is limited to 12 students.

The $80 tuition fee can be converted during 2020 to a membership fee if you choose to become an active member of the Washington  Fly Fishing Club
