Fly Tying Articles, Videos, Events & Miscellaneous
Jeff Gerwitz, Fly Tying Coordinator for Vanguard Chapter
Fly Tying – 3rd Thursday, each month at Dinosaur Hill Nature Center @ 7:30PM. All materials will be provided, tying equipment is available for use. Summer months may be fishing outings instead of tying. Check schedule below for updates. BRING A FEW BUCKS ($$$) FOR THE 50/50 DRAWING! THIS PAYS FOR THE TYING MATERIALS.
NOTE:The tables at the Nature Center are too thick for the clap on most clamp-on fly tying vises. Bring a pedestal vise if you have one, otherwise please bring a short 3/4" to 1" thick board to set on the table so that it can extend over the end of the table to hold your vise clamp.
Current and near future plans for fly tying and/or fishing will be found on the Calendar Page.
