Fly Tying Classes

Fly Tying Classes

Wednesday, March 4th, 2020 - 4 Weeks
7:00pm - 9:00pm
Mad River Outfitters


Group Size: 6 | Host: TBD

Fly tying can be a very fun and rewarding hobby and it brings the sport of fly fishing full circle. Nothing is more fun for a fly fisher than catching a fish on a fly that they have tied. We are proud to offer a full range of classes designed to teach you to tie your own flies when you can't be out fishing. A basic vise and a tool set are all that are required for the class although you will need to purchase some basic materials to practice with at home. A book and manual are included with the cost of the class.

Our Basic Fly Tying Course runs for 4 weeks and the classes are two hours each. These are almost always held on Monday or Wednesday nights and occasionally on Saturday mornings. We typically run one Basic class in November, one in January and one in February.

Necessary Equipment:
• Functional vise designed for fly tying
• Bobbin (for thread)
• 6/0 and 8/0 thread (color doesn't matter)
• Hackle Pliers
• Scissors
• Hair Stacker
• Half-Hitch tools and/or a whip finisher

Private fly tying lessons are always available. Learn more here.
