Default And so it begins...

The next step in my new but ever growing passion for fly fishing. I'm off to Townsend, TN to take the beginner tying course at LRO with Walter Babb. Walter taught the beginner fishing class I took earlier in the year and I couldn't be more excited to attend another of his classes. Gonna get a little fishing in while I'm there. After action report and maybe some pics to follow.

TroutEd: You are indeed on a good course to speed up your tying knowledge. Hands on instruction is definitely the best approach to learning tying. Good luck with fishing while you are there!

The class was awesome. I really feel like I have a good basis to start tying.

Here's Walter demoing a pattern:
