2019 Beginner Fly Tying

Through the March, and all of April, the Kilpatrick Fly Fishers club will be offering a number of classes for club members starting out with fly fishing.

On  April 1, and 8 (all Monday evenings) from 7 – 9 pm beginner fly tying classes are available.

This class takes an absolute beginner the basics of tying equipment, materials and tying techniques, by teaching you how to craft some of the most successful flies used in Saskatchewan.  Each class builds on the previous week’s knowledge, so that by the end of 5 weeks you will have the skills needed to tie most flies you will find in books, or online.
