Basic Skills for fly Tying Class

Our friends over at Coren's Rod and Reel just let us know about another upcoming opportunity to learn some fly tying basics.  If you're new to tying or wanting to get into it, this is a great way to get started.  Check it out and give them a call if you're interested.

Basic Skills for Beginning Fly Tying

Stuart Van Dorn will teach this class with a technique rather than pattern emphasis. For example parts of the fly (tail, body, hackle) will be worked on with different materials. There will be plenty of individual attention, if you want to learn what tying flies is all about but are new this is a great opportunity.

February Wrap Up

This month's Chi- Tie meetup was a blast.  We had one of the best turnouts we've had yet and just about took over the back room of the bar.  Flies were tied, some drinks downed, and of course all sorts of fishy conversation.  It was a good time with a big variety of flies being tied as always.
Our next meet up will be on March 9 and we hope you can make it!  It's a good break from this winter that's starting to wear on us all.  Think warm thoughts and prepare for the spring!
