The art of fly-tying allows you to replicate your favorite bugs as well as create patterns all your own to entice fish. Learn how to tie nine unique flies, and through those flies, the techniques needed to tie 95% of all trout flies! Each fly that you tie builds on the skills learned in previous flies. No experience necessary. Instructor: Scott Hanson
