Re: Tying lessons
Check with your local shops. Jimmy's All Season Anglers, where I live, offers free fly tying demos/lessons on Saturdays at 10 AM all winter long.
It's a good way to draw people in when it's cold out, and it builds customer loyalty.
You may find something similar close to home, at a shop, club, or even community college.
You can always tell a fly fisherman. You just can't tell him much.
