Fly-Tying Classes

Come spend some time with Fly Mastery and tie some creative fly patterns for your next fly-fishing trip! Our classes set aside time for learning new techniques, sharing design creativity, and telling fish stories over a good cup of coffee. We welcome kids of all ages and would gladly bring class to a local venue, if need be. Come join Fly Mastery for some shop-talk on:

  • Fly-Tying Tools
  • Fly-Tying Materials
  • Designing Effective Flies
  • Improving Fly-Tying Techniques

Fly Mastery classes are offered to help improve fly-tying talent, inspire fly-tying enthusiasts, and create a social environment for all to share in our similar passion of fly-fishing. Fly-tying classes offer much more. Many of the fly-tying materials come in large packages or sizable qualities. Quite often, attendees will trade portions of their material to grow their own color selections or texture options. It’s a great way to improve the fly-tying options when home at your bench.

LOCATIONS – Fly Mastery class locations will vary, all depending on available venues and where attendees are located. At this time, classes are being held in Fort Lauderdale and Plantation on a regular basis. Specific locations are announced a week prior to class.

DAYS – We hold two fly-tying classes each month (typically Saturday mornings) and only when two or more have committed.

TIMES – We start at 10.00am. Class will usually last for two hours. Most will hang out for another hour or two, tying flies, sharing stories, etc.

FEES – Saturday classes are complimentary. Private fly-tying lessons are offered for $20 an hour.

WHAT TO BRING – All attendees should have a vice and set of tools (i.e. scissors, bobbin, head cement and at least a few toothpicks). If an attendee is short on materials, Fly Mastery will be happy to get you going with our materials. For Saturday sessions, we suggest bringing a lunch or snack. Most of us hang out through the lunch hour.

Prior to coming to class, check out two posts written to jump-start folks who are new to fly-tying. See Fly-Tying Tools: Where Do You Start? and Fly-Tying Materials: Where Do You Start?. Both will give you a good sense of what’s involved with fly-tying.
