When I took the Fall Fly Tying Classes last year I didn't realize they were also called the Advanced Fly Tying Classes. My own tying skills are no where near "advanced" and I thought I might be in over my head. Not so! The classes do teach some fairly intricate patterns - and are probably not for the first time tyer, but the instruction is geared for those taking the class, and thankfully I was able to tie all the patterns with good success.
The Fall Fly Tying Classes will be held over 4 Wednesdays, October 20 and 27 and November 3 and 17. Classes begin at 7:00 PM at the Conference Room M-250 at Winchester Plaza, 1101 South Winchester Blvd., San Jose (if the classes change to room A 109 we will let you know) In order to make it even more enticing the cost for all four classes is only $10 for members.
The patterns taught focus on some of the larger species of fish - salmon, steelhead, stripers, very large trout, and perhaps a saltwater pattern, too.
Don't let your fly tying skills atrophy over the Fall and Winter. Get your vice to the Fall Fly Tying Classes. Class is limited to the first 10 members who sign up and pay. You can do both at the October 13 meeting.
