New for the 2023 Show will be Private Fly Tying Classes. These classes will be similar to those offered at the major Fly Fishing shows around the country. These will be taught by Nick Pionessa or Rick Kustich who are well known expert Fly Tyers and Fly Fishermen. They will last two hours and are limited to a small number of Students to maximize the learning process for each student. All materials are provided to tie each fly. Attendees need to bring their own vises, tools and battery powered lamps. This class is targeted for students with basic to advanced Fly-Tying skills and is not for "Beginner" Fly Tyers. The cost is $40 to attend and pre-registration is required. NO tickets will be available at the door.
Each class is for the angler who wants to be a serious tyer. More than just learning the mechanics of tying a specific Fly, you will learn about the creatures we are imitating, why we imitate them and how to design the imitations.
Most importantly you will learn from the expert the "When", "Where", "How" and "Why" to catch the most fish with this Fly. These private fly tying session will significantly improve your tying and catching skills in just a short time frame.
