Monthly Fly Tying Sessions
Jeff Gerwitz, Fly Tying Coordinator for Vanguard Chapter
The monthly Fly Tying sessions will be held on the 3rd Thursday of each month at Avery’s Tavern @ 7:30PM. Avery’s Tavern is located in the shopping center at the northwest corner of Crooks Road and M-59. Sessions will be about two hours long and will be held monthly from January through December. Sessions in November and December may be re-scheduled depending on the holidays. The plan this year is to tie flies that are appropriate for the time of the year so that we can fish the flies right away. We are going to start out with Steelhead streamers and eggs. Next we will concentrate on flies suitable for Florida during the winter. In April we will focus on flies for our Riverview outing in May. Finally, we will extend the fly tying sessions into the summer. These sessions will work on flies to match the hatch on Paint Creek and other suitable for ponds.
The tying session dates will be found on the calendar page.
All materials will be provided. Bring your vise and tools if you have them. Our chapter has several sets of tying equipment that can be used by participants. Experienced tyers, total beginners and all experience levels in between are welcome at these sessions. Please stop by and join in the fun!
