Smart Angling presents its live online fly tying classes.
A lot more than tying demonstrations of specific patterns, our sessions will teach you the principles, skills and techniques that will help you to design and craft your own effective patterns.
The lead instructor for our first five sessions this season will be Ciprian Rafan.
Ivo Balinov will join for the sessions on hare's ears and dry flies.
The sessions will focus on:
- selecting the right hooks and materials for specific techniques, fish and conditions
- the practical importance of size, dimensions, colors, and profile
- techniques for tying durable flies
- adjusting tried and tested generic patterns to your own fishing style and conditions
Each session will focus on a specific category of flies: nymphs, dries, lures, chironomids.
You are welcome to set up your own vice, tie with the instructor and get direct feedback or just watch, listen and ask your questions.
The sessions will be held at 7 pm EST (Toronto, Montreal, New York)
We will use Zoom: registered participants will receive the link and password by e-mail.
