Game and Parks to host fly-tying workshops in March

Anglers can learn the basics of fly tying that will prepare them to catch trout and panfish this spring. The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission will host fly-tying workshops March 8 and 12 at the Nebraska Outdoor Education Center in Lincoln.

Members of the Cornhusker Fly Fishers Club will teach these sessions, which will be from 6-9 p.m. March 8 and 2-5 p.m. March 12.

The workshop, which is open to new and experienced fly tiers, will include all materials and tools needed. Reading glasses are recommended for up-close work. Participants will have the opportunity to tie four to six flies. They also will learn about community resources available to continue tying flies on their own.

The cost is $10 per session. Come to one or both sessions; each essentially will be the same. Different variations of flies will be introduced during each session.

Visit the event listing at calendar.outdoornebraska.gov for more information or to access the link to join the program.

The education center is located at 4703 N. 44th St.

I am a bush leaguer when it comes to fly-tying.  I have played with it since I was a kid, back in the day when I had no tools and went to craft stores for materials.  Yeah, maybe I have upgraded a bit since then, but the results have not been a whole lot better.  But, you know what?  The fish don’t care!

Now the folks from the Cornhusker Fly Fishers that will be teaching these sessions, they really know what they are talking about!  Listen to them!
