Default Re: Took a fly tying class today

Learning from those that already have years of experience in fly-tying is definitely the best way to go. I first learned how to tie a year ago and looking back, I realize how much more difficult it would have been had I not had someone there to help me step by step in the beginning. Also, I learned tips and tricks that are more difficult to figure out on your own, I even learned how to do the whip finish without using the tool, only using my fingers. I still have a long way to go before becoming a really good tier, but the process is certainly fun.

Tying your own flies is cool, and the best part is catching a trout on one.

I caught 10 fish with my first tied fly and retired it because I was afraid of getting broke off.
