Date and Fly Name


TCO Reading is proud to begin offering in-store fly, tying classes. All of our classes will be held on Sundays from 3-5 pm and will be limited to 5 students. An instructor will lead the class in tying the fly of the week and help individuals with skills and techniques to make tying fun and easy. These classes will be geared towards beginners, but experienced fly tiers are welcome as well, there will be plenty of tips and tricks to learn. Students should bring their own vice and tools. The calendar is listed below. These classes will just not be about tying patterns but focused on technique, bug life, and material selection.
