Fly Tying: Beginning Fly Tying Classes (Sign Up)

SwittersB

Summer is over. Most shops are already gathering names for their beginning fly tying classes. Get in there and get started. Don’t be shy. Some in the class will be taking a refresher from a long lay off, some will be in there because their wife got them a gift certificate to get their lazy rear out of ‘the chair’. While others, are there (like you) a bit nervous about what it all entails. Get into the shop and see what it takes to get signed up. As time approaches your week, find out if the shop has adequately booked enough people into the class. Be sure on cancellations for weather. Give them a good cell number or some number to reach you to let you know they are canceling for the weather, come Winter. Ask if there is a refund policy should the shop fail to fill the class or the instructor fails to continue. Often, the shop will not fill Spring classes as people get too antsy with the improving weather. This can be a good time for a class, if the numbers are there. 3-5 classes are typical in a price range of $45-65. It is almost always worth the effort to learn the handling of the tools, the materials, tie a few serviceable flies and hopefully light that pilot light. The rest is up to you.

Additional: I have been reminded that community colleges, neighborhood centers, fly fishing clubs and private lessons. If there are any other options please let us know.

Fly Fishing: K-Pump (The Best Pump)

I previously remarked about the quality of K-Pump’s. I am again touting their worth because of the quality of the product, but also because of their immediate customer service over a minor cosmetic concern. Check them out and trust me, an exceptional tool.Oregon based, they at a minimum have a ton of NW business.
