We’ve had a couple requests to run another Beginner Fly Tying Class, so we figured it would be good to do a couple Intermediate classes as well!
Thank you for supporting your local fly shop!

There were a few folks who weren’t able to make the last Beginner Tying Class we had a few months back, so we figured it was time for another one. In addition, we’ll be running two Intermediate-level classes as well that will cover some more in-depth techniques for tying some of our favorite summer patterns! On top of that, we’ll be placing all fly tying materials, tools, and hooks on sale for the day! Come by and brush up on your summer tying!

Schedule of Events:

9:00 AM – Doors Open

10:00 AM – Beginner Fly Tying Class, Cost: FREE!
This class is designed to walk people through the essential basics of fly tying. We will walk each attendee through tying a couple basic fly patterns that fish well on our local water, as well as discussing the uses of the many fly tying tools out there! This is a great class for beginners as well that those who want to brush up on their fly tying and tool knowledge. If you already have a vise and tools, feel free to bring them! We do have a limited amount of loaner vises and tools as well.

1:00 PM – Intermediate Fly Tying Class – Building Better Baitfish, Cost: $20/person
This class is for those of you who already have a grasp on the basics of fly tying but are looking for some ways to design patterns for imitating the various species of bait and forage fish we have in the area. We’ll be discussing proper material selection for getting the correct profile, ideal movement, and proper color, and will be walking you through several of our favorite patterns, including Matt’s Llano Critter and the Craft Fur Baitfish. We want to make sure that everyone receives proper instruction, so space is limited to the first six people to reserve a spot!

3:30 PM – Intermediate Fly Tying Class – Terrestrials of Summer, Cost: $20/person
It’s summertime, and just about everywhere you’re going to be fishing, be it here in the Hill Country or out west for trout, fish are eating grasshoppers and ants. Come learn about tying a proper grasshopper imitation, including the advantages and disadvantages of foam versus deer hair, and why a drowned hopper isn’t necessarily a bad thing. We’ll also be discussing ant patterns which are often overlooked as a summer food for fish. We’ll be tying Shimazaki’s CDC Ant and Craven’s Charlie Boy hopper. We want to make sure that everyone receives proper instruction, so space is limited to the first six people to reserve a spot!

Call the shop at (512) 828-FISH for more info and to reserve your spot! Take care and God Bless!
