Steelhead Fly Tying Class

Kenyon Pitts - 01/10/24

Washington Steelhead



Steelhead flies are some of my favorite patterns to tie. The endless color combinations, large proportions and blank canvas for creativity are just a few of the reasons I find myself spinning these up all winter long. From sparse summer run traditional patterns, to the big, gaudy winter run flies, I enjoy them all.

I will be offering a course on how to tie some of these patterns on January 17th, 2024. This will not be an introduction level class. You should have a good understanding of fly tying fundamentals, along with your own tools/vise. We will have all necessary materials pre-selected and available for purchase, however you are welcome to use your own materials if you have them.

The class will be 2 hours and we will be tying 3 different patterns. The cost for the class is $50, not including materials. A material packet will be available for $25.

Dates Available:
