Over the last several years, PVFF has provided a winter-time fly tying activity for novice to advanced fly tiers. What better way to avoid the cold, but get out of the house for several hours to tie flies? In previous years (at similar events) participants have had the opportunity to learn how and to tie (respectively); streamers, poppers, and wet flies.
But in contrast to the previous sessions, the theme of our February 22, 2020, fly tying event is to tie flies to support military veterans of the new Frederick Program of Project Healing Waters, as an introductory package for new PVFF members, and for our club’s outreach to youth fly fishing in the Frederick community.
The event will begin at 9:30 AM and conclude around 2:30 PM that day. Tiers of all skill levels are encouraged to attend. Bring your own fly tying equipment and PVFF will provide a selection of tying materials for you to construct your own favorite (wet fly, dry fly, nymph and/or streamer) pattern(s). Guidance will also be provided for those who are at the early stage of fly tying, as well as to those who are expanding their tying skills.
We will break for lunch around noon. Water and pizza will be provided. (A free-will offering to cover cost of lunch is welcome). Looking forward to a great day together behind the vise!
