While most tiers may not agree on the economics of fly tying, nearly all will agree with actor Ewan McGregor, of Star Wars fame and who portrayed biologist and fly fishing expert Dr. Alfred Jones in the movie “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen”.  In an interview, McGregor explained the reasons why he himself loves to tie flies: that crafting a fly is transcendental, and there’s nothing more gratifying than catching a fish on a fly you tied.

If that appeals to you, here's your opportunity to learn from expert tiers.  Fly Tying 101 is a 3-hour, hands-on workshop that covers the basics of tools, materials, and terminology.  Students will tie at least 3 different flies using popular techniques and thread knots. And best of all, it's FREE!
