Jeff “Bear” Andrews has been fly fishing and tying flies for 48 years. In 1998 he was the recipient of the “Buz” Buszeck Memorial Fly Tying Award, the highest honor bestowed upon a fly tyer by the Federation of Fly Fishers. Jeff has tied flies commercially for 34 years producing as many as 2000 dozen flies a year and has taught 1000’s of people to tie flies. Jeff will be instructing us on patterns that he has created for trout, steelhead and maybe even a carp fly or two.
What to bring and what is included: Please bring your own tying tools (vise, lamp, tools, thread, etc). Lunch will be provided as will all of the materials for the flies that we will be tying.
All of the guest fly tying seminars are open to anyone that would like to participate, however, these seminars are not intended to be a “first time” learning to tie flies class. Some basic fly tying techniques are required. What these seminars will do is help take your fle tying to the next level with instruction from some of the best in the industry.
