Like many fly tyers I feel it's easy for me to get locked into tying mostly streamers and nymphs which although still a lot of fun leaves my dry fly box full of mostly commercially tied patterns. Since i put a strong emphasis on tying my wet flies to be as durable as possible tying dry flies with materials such as foam makes for a smart decision to me. Since foam is basically a blank page to create with the options are pretty vast so i am super excited about the upcoming foam technique class with Umpqua signature fly tyer Andrew Grillos at the Bozeman Angler.
The class is Sunday Feb. 15th from 12-3pm cost is $50 limted to six students and we have a couple spots left right now.
I've been fishing Grillos patterns for a few years now and they straight up catch fish. They are also designed to be very durable "guide flies" as he calls them so you can continue catching more fish with less flies. He will demonstrate various techniques to help you gain confidence with controlling materials and making your bugs look good and work great.
This class is geared towards the intermediate tyer so it will not be covering basic tying techniques. All materials will be provided for the class so let's get ready to build some awesome dry fly bugs so your box will be full by the spring time ready to slay fish during the first caddis and skwalla hatches.
