Fly Tying

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.  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, jeff 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.

The many fly pattern recipes 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!
