Beginners FLY TYING CLASS

The Beginners Fly Tying class is designed for the beginner fly-tier looking to tie their own flies. In this class, we will teach you how to tie nymphs, dry flies, and streamers. In addition, we will introduce students to fly tying tools, materials, and a touch of entomology (the study of insects). No experience is necessary to join us for our beginner class and our goal is for you to leave the class with the knowledge and experience required to tie basic fly patterns.

The class is for two nights, at our fly shop in Perham on Monday evenings. Classes will last approximately 2 hours.
