Monthly Fly Tying Sessions
Jeff Gerwitz, Fly Tying Coordinator for Vanguard Chapter
The monthly Fly Tying sessions for the new fiscal year will begin in October 2013. These sessions will be held on the 3rd Thursday, each month at Dinosaur Hill Nature Center @ 7:30PM. Sessions will be about two hours long and will be held monthly from October 2013 through April 2014. We will continue our theme of tying vintage Michigan flies. Each month Jeff has selected a vintage pattern for the group to tie. The selected patterns and tying session dates will be found on the calendar page.
The featured patterns as well as many others can be found at:
All materials will be provided. Bring your vise and tools. 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!
