You don't have that much more time left to sign up for Andrew Grillos' Advanced Foam Fly Tying class! We have moved the time of the class back from 12-3pm to 3-6pm. That way you'll still have time to get a full day of fishing in before the class.
If you've missed any of our previous annoucements, the Advanced Foam Fly Tying class will be taught by renowned angler, guide, and fly tyer Andrew Grillos. Andrew's patterns are now tied commerically by Umpqua Feather Merchants. His flies are durable, simple, bouyant, and deadly. Learn to tie his flies such as the Fat Caddis, Hippie Stomper, El Camino, Pool Toy and more.
Foam is one of those materials that if you're not tying with, you really should be. It's cheap, bouyant, durable and comes in a wide variety of colors and sizes to fit any pattern or style. It can be used in dry flies, nymphs, streamers, saltwater patterns... Just about everything. Some of the most popular flies in the shop, such as the Chubby, are tied with foam.
Currently, we have 4 spots left open for the class. The cost is $50, and that includes all materials. Students are expected to bring their own vise and tools and have a good knowledge of the basics of tying. This is not a beginner level class. Give us a call at 406-587-9111 to sign up!
