Fly Tying SeminarsIn the off season, our experienced tyers offer seminars on specific flies or topics. Although instructional, the presence of tyers of different skill levels makes for good discussion and exchange of ideas.

On-River ClinicsDuring the season, experienced members offer on-river instruction in specific areas or techniques. Topics such as nymphing, dead drift and dry fly fishing may be covered. These are designated as Instructional Trips.
