Fly Tying Classes
As in any other sport, the equipment, terminology and techniques can be very confusing if you are a novice. We will shed light on and simplify all the jargon associated with the art, and instruct you on how to properly dress a fly to correct proportions so your patterns will match the natural insects you are trying to imitate. Our on-premise classroom is a busy place where newcomers to the sport can learn the art of fly tying.
Learn the basics of fly tying in our popular intro program.
Our many guest speakers can help experienced tiers improve their technique.
The Intermediate Classes take tying to the next level where you will have a lot more flexibility, tying flies with patterns that challenge you. In addition, you will tie flies used locally on the Trout streams of Ontario including the world class Grand River system.
Fly tying secrets are shared and complex processes are explained to tie the most challenging patterns. The class covers the more complex and difficult techniques such as: spinning deer hair, winging for dry flies, weaving, epoxy and glue gun techniques, and introduction to tube flies.
