Our Fly Tying Basics Class is intended to be an introduction to fly tying for those with little to no experience. We will cover essential fly tying materials, tools, and material handling skills. We aim to give you the confidence and skills necessary to whip up a few dozen flies that you will actually fish! Along the way, we hope to inspire a passion to create your own flies and teach you a little something about how we approach flies and fly fishing. Throughout the class, we will tie several flies proven to work in our home waters around Missoula: The Blackfoot, Bitterroot, Clark Fork, and Rock Creek.
