Fly tying has remained a focus for the club, with regular fly tying sessions open to all members. During these sessions, we swap patterns, help novice tiers, learn new techniques, and just enjoy the fellowship of other members in a relaxed setting. Fly tying sessions, usually run by club members, are hosted the first Saturday of every month at the clubhouse, April to December. During the winter months of January to March fly tying sessions are hosted every other Saturday at the clubhouse. Plans for what will be the fly pattern of focus at each fly tying session, along with what materials, if any, to bring, are announced through a club email message distributed to all members.
As the instructor ties the fly, it is projected on a large screen at the club house in high def so you get a close up view no matter where you are sitting.
