If you are new to tying and looking for a class then look no further. We offer a free beginner fly tying class. Larry has been running the beginner tying classes for years and is a great teacher and fly tier. We usually start our beginner fly tying classes in the middle of February. The flies you will be learning are very effective patterns and will catch fish on our local water and across the state.
Starting in the late fall, after hunting season, we start our famous Thursday Night Fly Tying. Every week we have a different theme for the night of tying. We are lucky to have a great bunch of guys and a ladies that are great tiers and fun folks to hang out with. Everyone is super supportive of new tiers and there are absolutely no ” Uppity Tiers or Attitudes” in our group. Just a bunch of folks tying flies and telling lies!
How about for the Ladies? We have a ladies only night. It all started with our Ladies Fly Fishing group, The Whitefish Knotty Nymphs. Every Wednesday Night at 6:00 we open the doors for Ladies Night. We are always looking for new ladies to join tying night. You don’t have to have ever tied a fly or fly fished before. You just have to join us and we’ll get you going in no time! Along with tying flies we also talk about a subject that will help with you going out and catching fish on your own or out fishing your husband or boyfriend! From knots….. To whip finishes….. To what flies to use…… Were all about getting you on the water and catching fish!
