Even though Indiana does not have that many trout in it's water we do have a large number of great fly tiers who love trout. Much of what we focus on here in central Indiana is warmwater related but over the years we have had a number of these local tiers in the shop either showcasing their work or teaching a class about tying trout flies. Fortunately, there is a new (relatively new) fly tier here in Indianapolis that loves tying trout flies and he is VERY good at it.
It has been our great pleasure to get to know Son Tao over the last year (or so) and see the exceptional flies he ties. His attention to detail and passion for the craft is clear when you see what he produces at the vise. Son also wrote a moving article for our latest magazine about how he got into fly tying. If you have not read it you can read it online here.
We are pleased to announce that Son will be teaching a class on December 9th focusing on three patterns and his various tying techniques. All three are trout patterns and are a pleasure to tie and fish.
The class will be three hours from 1:00 pm until 4:00pm on Saturday December 9th. Mark your calendar and sign up today. We expect this class to fill fast.
