FlyTying Instruction

We can teach anyone to tie a flies.


Tying flies is not difficult. In fact it’s rather easy. If you can follow a basic recipe from a cook book; you can learn to tie flies.

A lot of pleasure is derived from catching fish on flies that you’ve tied yourself and we love teaching people how to do this. We can impart to you the basic principles and explain the logical steps and techniques required to tie thousands of different fly patterns, in a single day.

While occasionally we run group workshops, fly tying tuition is available every single day of the year. We are available to assist you either 1:1 or for small groups, at the time of your choosing. We can do this in our homes, at the shop, or at a time and place of your choosing.

Participants will learn the most common techniques as well as the most important fly patterns for fishing our area. We run through a range of the fly patterns used locally and teach the tying methods. We touch on when/how to fish them, all the while relating it back to the life cycle of the various insects they represent.

These sessions are a lot of fun and they are perfect for those making the first steps into fly tying or those keen to expand on what they already know.

The cost is $400 for a full day for 1-2 people and includes all tuition, fly tying materials, tea/coffee/biscuits, cold water. BYO sandwich!
