For the fly tying portion of the event, bring your vise, tools and materials (hackle, pliers, scissors, and accouterments,black 8/0 or 6/0 thread). The focus will be on three patterns within the development of a fly – nymph, emerger, and dry. There will be 2-32” monitors and few extra fly tying kits for beginners to borrow.
It will be a great event – hope to see you there!
