Annual Fly Tying Class well attended

The Chapter’s annual fly tying class started on February 6 and was a big success. There were over 2 dozen individuals attending to learn to tie flies.  The majority of individuals were beginners and some this was the first time doing any type of tying.  A great deal of time was spent on tools and how to use them and basic techniques like starting thread, using the whip finisher, and applying materials to the hook.

There were several students who had some experience and were working on more advanced flies and techniques. We are very fortunate to have many expert tyers in our Chapter and area who are willing to give of their time and help teach the art of fly tying.  There were 11 instructors present and many of the beginners were fortunate to get individual help.

Below are pictures of a san juan worm,  green weenie, and bead head green weenie tied by the beginning tyers.
