Fly Tying Demonstrations and Seminars

Interested in offering expert fly tying to your club? I offer fly tying demonstrations and fly tying seminars custom designed for your needs.

Fly Tying Demonstrations:  I can custom design fly tying demonstrations for your club or other event. Demonstrations can be in conjunction with your monthly club meeting or other special event. I feature personalized demonstrations, or projected presentations utilizing a video camera and digital projector on a 7' screen to enable an audience to view fine detail of various patterns. Popular demonstrations involve focusing in on a particular destination, like Pyramid Lake or the Fall River. Also popular are presentations which focus on particular insects and the various flies that imitate them throughout their life cycle. For example: The Life Cycle of the Pale Morning Dun Mayfly. My fly tying demonstrations are filled with insights on tying technique, entomology and fishing methods for various patterns.

Fly Tying Demonstration Fees: Fees vary depending on the subject matter and demonstration length.

Fly Tying Seminars: I can custom design fly tying seminars for the needs of your club or event. I offer seminars for beginners focused on fly tying fundamentals, for intermediate tiers learning to explore new fly fishing topics, and for experienced tiers needing to tune up already advanced skills. Planning a fish-out and need to learn the best patterns for that destination. I can design a seminar to enable tiers to learn how to tie and fish local patterns.

Half-day Seminars are $30/student, plus materials fee (approximately 4 hours).
Full day seminars are $50/student, plus materials fee (approximately 8 hours of instruction)

In-class Materials: All in-class materials and hooks are provided. I charge a nominal materials fee in addition to the class fee to cover the cost of materials.

Class Size: Minimum participation is 6 students and maximum is 10 students to ensure I can give personalized instruction to all participants.

Projection System: Classes feature use of video projection system to project fly tying images on either a TV Screen, or on a 7' screen to enable students to see fine detail during the seminar.

Location: I offer demonstrations and seminars within 100 miles of the San Francisco Bay Area at the fees quoted. Travel and lodging costs may be incremental for farther locations.
