Fly-Tying: An Introduction

with Terry Kelley


This is a great hobby- this instructor has been tying flies for over 40 years! Fly fishing is his passion and fly tying takes it to the next level. This hands-on class is intended for the first-time tier. You will examine and us use different equipment and material as the class progresses. You will be tying several types and patters of clues such as streamers, drys, wets. Nymphs, and tandems. These flies are what angles are using in local waters to catch trout and salmon.

Before the class begins, you will need to talk to the instructor about purchasing your own equipment. Suggested Equipment Source from Cabelas:  1. Cabela’s standard fly-tying tool kit IK-3107332. Thread kit IK-318715 3. Cement IK-310680 or equivalent items.
