Intermediate Fly Tying Download as iCal file
Saturday, March 19, 2022, 08:00am - 12:00pm

The next fly tying class that DCFF will offer will be at the intermediate level.

The Intermediate Class will be held on Saturday morning 3/19/2022 starting at 8 a.m until noon.  The cost will be $10 for members and $20 for non-members for that morning, which includes hooks, materials, tools, vise if you need them.  If you have  basic fly tying skills from the past and and want to  increase and improve your skills, please sign up for that morning on-line at the DCFF website: The class is limited to fourteen people. Members in the past that have taken this class felt like they could tie most of their own flies and felt confident and proud of their results fishing streams and lakes on their future outings!

Topics to be covered are as follows:  Choosing quality hackle and fly tying materials that make a huge difference in their flies, substituting fly-tying materials, choosing the right colors, contrast and properties for quality flies!     

Also, we will cover selection, application, preparation, and storage of fly-tying materials at home.  Choosing deer hair, bucktails and where they are found on a deer’s hide and application of the right hair for the right job in your tying.  The difference of natural materials v.s. synthetics and their application in tying.  One of my favorite topics is “Variety to a Theme” in changing up materials used that cause different outcomes and use of your flies.

Three patterns that we will tie are: Diving Damsel Nymph, Denny’s Seal Bugger and the Elk-Hair Caddis.
