2019 Greater Cincinnati Fly Fishing Show
Fly Tying Workshops
Information and Registration

(Registration Link at Bottom)

For 2019 we will be offering a total of five 2-hour tying workshops. For all workshops, you must provide your own vice, tying tools including (but not limited to) hair stackers, adhesives including head cement and brush-on super glue, magnifier if desired, light (power will be available), as well as your tying threads. For types of threads required, see the descriptions below. All other tying materials including hooks will be provided.

You should be at least an intermediate-level tier, having completed an entry level tying program (or equivalent) and be an active tier, i.e., you have continued to tie flies since your last class. It will be assumed you know the basic principles of tying flies and are reasonably proficient in their use.
