Intermediate and Skills Development Tying Class
|Class:||Married Wing Flies|
|Date/Time:||January 27, 2018, 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm|
Synopsis of Class
Wet flies can be some of the funnest flies to tie and (sometimes) the most frustrating. Frustrating because many wet fly patterns have married wings. That is to say different color feather fibers are used to create an entire wing and this can make the wings difficut to put together. At the very least a more tedious process.
However, if you know a few simple rules and take your time you can master these most elegant flies. Plus, they still catch lots of fish. In this class we will be creating matched and married wings from the very basic to the more complex. The focus of this class is to learn the basics of wet fly structure and the process of creating married wings. That said, remember the primary purpose of this class is to have FUN!
