Fly Tying Activities

A group of fly tiers meets most Wednesday mornings to tie flies at Sues Dance at 2544-B Shell Road in Georgetown. For more information contact Clint Barton at clintbb2167@gmail.com
We are interested in starting some tying instruction for beginners and intermediate tiers. The classes for beginners will cover tying tools, natural and synthetic materials, tying techniques, tips and tricks and hands-on instructions on how to tie several effective patterns for native Texas fish. There will be no charge to take the beginner course, and the class will be filled on a first come-first served basis, so don’t delay in notifying Brooks if you want to participate. So, if you have ever thought that you would like to learn to tie your own flies, this is your opportunity. Let Brooks Bouldin know that you are interested in either of these classes, and as soon as we have a group signed up, we will select a night of the week and get started. Intermediate classes will begin after the beginner’s course is completed unless we don’t have adequate interest in the beginner’s course.
We tie flies with the Project Healing Waters veterans the first and third Tuesdays at the VA facility in Harker Heights. For more information contact Brooks Bouldin at brooks@bbouldin.com

Fly Tying Sessions at Chris Johnson’s fly shop

Chris hosts fly tying sessions each Wednesday night, starting at 7:00pm, at his Living Waters Fly Fishing shop. The shop’s address is 103 North Brown Street, Round Rock. Tiers bring their own vises and materials; there is no cost to participate. Beginners and non-tyers are welcome to come and watch; there will always be people there to answer questions, give instruction, or just talk fly fishing.
