It's that time of year again for our Beginners Fly Tying Class. But this year, we pleased to announce that ASUMH has accepted our class as part of their Continuing Education program.
This is a class for beginners to teach the basic principles of fly tying. Students will tie two each of two different flies at each class, all of which can be used on our local rivers. All tools and materials are provided by the North Arkansas Fly Fishers. A mentor will be available on a one-to-two or one-to-one basis.
The class is taught by Tom Emerick. Tom as well as our mentors are members of NAFF in good standing, and have experience teaching the local Home School group, our annual Sowbug Roundup, Conclave/Fly Fishing Fair, and/or past Introduction to Fly Tying Classes. Most importantly, all are active fly fishermen/women with a minimum of twenty years experience in the sport, and on our local waters. These are well seasoned individuals who love the sport with a willingness to share their knowledge and experience. In addition, mentors are on hand to assist the students as they ty the subject fly.
The class will be held on Mondays in January, 2019 from 6 to 8 pm, specifically January 7, 14, 21, & 28, and will be held in the Ozarks Regional Arts Council Conference Room at The Sheid. Class is $20.00, and includes a one year membership in NAFF.
