Fly Tying Instruction at The Riverhouse

I host a few groups of angler / fly tiers at the Riverhouse each year. This package includes two nights lodging, great food, and a “Patterns and Techniques” or “Techniques Only” fly tying class using my “Close-Up Video Tying Theater”.

We decide well in advance of the class what flies I will teach. We strive to cover five patterns during the class. I provide all materials in kit form. Each kit will tie two flies. I tie the first fly and everyone watches. We tie the next fly together, step-by-step, and then you tie the next fly on your own.

The Riverhouse is located on the banks of the AuSable Mainstream in the “Heart of the Holy Water”, just below the half way point of almost nine miles of flies only, catch and release water. Within a twenty minute drive are miles of wadeable water on the AuSable North and South branch. It is a fly fishers paradise.

The package includes, two nights lodging, meals, fly tying instruction with advise on where and when to fish. Guides and equipment are available at Gates Lodge, a quick five minutes away.

This is not a class for the beginning tier. You need to have a basic understanding of materials handling. You need to be able to tie a basic dry fly. It need not be a thing of beauty; I will help you with that.

Groups of 4-6. Cost is $375 per person.
