Catching a fsh on a fy you’ve tied yourself is a great thrill. And Fly Tying is a wonderful hobby in itself. It leads you to a better understanding of insects and other fsh prey and thus become a better fy fsher. To get you started on tying or to help you grow your skills, we offer two six-session classes expressly tuned to the Internet Age.

Beginners Class: People have learned to tie fies from books for years. Books allow an ordered sequencing in the introduction of new techniques that build on previous ones. But books are static and subtle dynamics are hard to convey. Video conveys dynamics, but the quality of the instruction is not uniform. Some are good; some are bad and bad habits are hard to break. Proper introduction of techniques is commonly missing. Books and videos can’t correct you if you are doing something wrong. That is where individual instruction excels.

Learn to do things “right from the start” from our excellent instructors who are some of the best in the East. Techniques are taught in a sequence that continually builds competence. Our instructors watch you and make sure you are doing things right. Further, we provide a quality vice, tools, hooks and all materials. The only upfront cost is our modest fee and your time. Finally, we provide a printed manual with summarized tying descriptions for each pattern plus a reference to a web video we believe is the best for that pattern. So sign up for and take our course and “be the best that you can be” in the shortest time possible. Then you’ll be ready to become even better after you take our Intermediate Course next year.

Intermediate Class: While our Beginners Course is the same from year to year, after all, basics are basics; our Intermediate Course is redesigned each year. New patterns and techniques are introduced by tiers through-out the world during the previous year are monitored, and the best ones that mesh with the skill set of the Beginners Class are selected. Thus the class remains interesting to past attendees and also to those who have never taken it before. So sign up to continue your growth as a tier and enjoy the camaraderie of other like-purposed students.
