BREWER, Maine (WABI) - The Penobscot County Fly Fishers are gearing up for their 2018 slate of Fly Tying classes.
Classes last 6 weeks beginning on Monday January 8th and are Monday's from 6pm to 8pm at the Penobscot County Conservation Association located at 570 North Main St. In Brewer.
The course is designed to expose students to a variety of tying tools, techniques, and materials in order to give them a solid foundation in this aspect of the sport of fly fishing. Each class will start with a discussion of the pattern to be tied and the materials used for the pattern, followed by a tying demonstration of the pattern by one of our instructors.
Afterwards students will head to their vises to practice the pattern under the tutelage of our staff. There should be ample time for each student to complete a number of flies each night. As time allows, we will also show variations of the patterns tied in class, display different types of fly tying vises, and provide information about the life cycle of the living forms the tied flies are intended to imitate.
The course fee is $40, which includes all necessary materials and the use of fly tying tools during class time. Students who already have tying equipment are more than welcome to bring it.
The class is limited to 30 students on a first-come, first-serve basis. All students under 17 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Everyone participating in the class will be required to sign a waiver form.
