Craig is a fantastic fly tier with years of experience at the vise. A great resource to learn some really cool fly tying methods.
Tying the Adams Parachute
This dry fly pattern is one of the most popular and successful patterns one could have in their fly box. This class will be targeted to the beginner to the more intermediate tiers. And for those that have been tying for years, Craig will show you a better tying process to make the fly better and easier to tie and avoiding accidentally tying down those hackle fibers. Craig will also show you how to use CDC fibers, which have some advantages over hackle fibers.
You will need a tying vise, whip finisher, bodkin, bobbin with 8/0 thread (between 70 and 150 denier), scissors, and optionally, hackle pliers. If you do not have all the equipment, let us know and we will provide it.
Tying the Muddler Minnow
Another popular fly pattern that should be in ones fly box. This can be fished dry, wet, or as a streamer. The versatility of the Muddler is because it can mimic a variety of aquatic and terrestrial bugs like sculpins, leeches, grasshoppers, crickets, spent mayflies, emerging green drakes, stonefly nymphs, mice, shiners, and general minnows.
This class is best for the tier that has the basic fundamentals and skills. You will learn the fun aspect of spinning deer hair. And once mastered, you will be able to tie other spun deer hair patterns.
You will need a tying vise, whip finisher, bodkin, and bobbin with 3/0 or GSP thread, scissors, hair stacker and optionally, hair packer. If you do not have all the equipment, let us know and we will provide it.
We hope to see you!!! feel free to drop a line if you need any more information on the classes.
Thanks So Much- Capefish
