The Master's Fly Tying program is for anyone interested in fly tying. Enrollment is on a first come basis and is limited to around 24 persons. It usually runs once a week during the month of January and the first part of February for five or six sessions. You do not have to be a "master tier", you just need to know the basics and and have had some experience tying.
