Fly Tying Classes
The Monadnock Chapter of Trout Unlimited will offer Fly Tying Classes at the Cheshire County Fish and Game Club in Keene, NH. Fly Tying is directly related to the education mission of Trout Unlimited. We use fly tying to teach people about natural resources, entomology, and of course how trout relate to their primary food source. We use fly tying as a social event, and as a way to connect with youngsters and adults alike. Most of all, we do it because it's fun! The Fly Tying classes will start by teaching basic techniques on simple patterns for the first few weeks. The remaining class time will be determined by the participants and their choices. This could involve tying zonkers, dry fly patterns or classic New England streamers for example. The chapter will supply materials and have tools available for class use. The first five week session will be a Beginner's session and will run from Monday, February 10 to March 10. We'll start at 6:30 pm and be done by 8:30 with pracitce time until 9:30 or so. An Advanced session of 5 weeks will follow. The second session will be Monday, March 17 and March 24, then Mondays from April 7 to April 21. Each session will have a range of tiers and we will work with each student to help them along. The fee for each 5 week session is $75 for adults, $50 for CCF&G members, $25 for students and veterans.The cost for one session only is $15 for adults, $10 for CCF&G members and $5 for students and veterans.
