with Larry Antonuk and Lew Derby

Saturday - March 25th, 2023 - 11:00am to 3:00pm

OVERVIEW: Regardless of the latest hot fly or fishing technique, it's hard to rival the enjoyment or satisfaction of raising then catching a fish on a dry fly! In this class we'll work through the many techniques needed to construct the basic patterns. We'll start with simple but useful flies, move on to parachutes and spinners, make hair wings, and follow up with classic Catskill patterns using hackle tip wings.

GOAL: At the end of this class, participants will leave with an enhanced knowledge of different techniques specific to tying Dry Flies. Students will tie as many different dry fly patterns as possible, in sizes that are fishable, and should depart with a solid skillset enabling them to tie any dry pattern that comes along, regardless of hatch!

PREREQUISITES: Students must be 13 years old or older. An intermediate level of fly-tying experience and skill is required for this class. Please bring your personal vice and tools if desired, though a vice and tools can be furnished with advance notice. All materials required to tie the hosted flies in class will be provided.
