Beginner Fly Tying with guide Mark Swenson, Sunday 10/18/20 from 9:30am-4pm

Learn to Tie Trout Flies for the Farmington River & other CT streams with guide Mark Roy Swenson.
Mark has been teaching fly fishing and fly tying for over 40 years. Fooling wary Farmington River trout is more satisfying and rewarding if you learn to tie the flies yourself, plus you can tie your own special weights and variations that are not commercially available. This one day beginner class covers dry flies, emergers, nymphs and streamers, and teaches you to how to construct the go-to flies for use throughout the season, especially on the Farmington. All materials, including vises and tools will be provided, or you can use your own vise and tools. 

The first class is Sunday, October 18th and is SPECIFICALLY geared for RAW BEGINNERS ONLY. Please do not sign up if you have any tying experience. Please note - Mark will be offering additional classes, held during the winter months. November’s class will be geared for novice-beginners to intermediate tyers who want to step-up their tying skills. Tuition is $150.00 paid in advance, by check, to secure your spot. Class hours will be from 9:30am-4pm (1/2 hour to 45 min lunch break, bring a bag lunch). The class size is limited to 4 people and it always fills up quickly, so sign up today by calling Mark at 203-632-0206 studio land line or his cell/text at 203-203-586-8007.
