Guest Fly Tier: Ed McCoy
January 11 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
We are excited to announce a fly tying class with Ed McCoy, one of the premier dry fly tying experts in the Midwest.
The class will be held at the Elkhart Conservation Club on Saturday, January 11, 2020, from 9 A.M – 4 P.M.
Captain Ed McCoy grew up in Northern Michigan fly fishing for trout, salmon, and steelhead and graduated from
Michigan State University with degrees in Zoology and Fisheries & Wildlife. While attending MSU he worked on
several research projects studying stream ecology and fish biology in Northern Michigan. Upon graduating from
MSU he then attended the University of Michigan as a post-graduate research assistant. Ed was very fortunate
throughout his college years to be afforded the opportunity to research and fish our most notable trout streams.
As a full time guide with over 17 years of experience, Ed enjoys every aspect of fly fishing and if it has fins he will chase it. He is very passionate about dry fly fishing for trout and has several of his go-to patterns available through the Orvis Company and more recently Montana Fly Company.
This tying class is designed for intermediate to advanced tyers. Cost of the class is $50 which includes coffee/
donuts, lunch, soft drinks, and tying materials. Students need to bring tying tools, vise, threads, deer hair stacker, light, and extension cord.
Class size is limited to 20 students; your reservation will be secured when your check is received. Please mail your checks to Ann Miller, 140 Higman Park Hill, Benton Harbor, MI 49022
