2017 Beginners Fly Tying Class

The classes will be conducted at the Lodge at Gander Mountain, 8001 Old Troy Pike, Huber Heights, OH 45424. No experience, tools, or equipment required – just come. If you need to rent a tool kit for the class, the cost is $70.00 for the newer kits and $35.00 for the older kits. The rental fee is returned to you at the last session, provided all tools and storage devices are returned in good working order. If you desire to purchase a tool kit, one option for you would be to go the Fisherman's Headquarters in Dayton where you can receive a discount for being a MVFF member. You may also purchase kits on-line or from other fly shops.

Materials will be provided at no cost. Check the Meeting Sites page for a map. Links are provided below to each of the patterns for the class.

Please note the Winter Weather Policy which will govern whether tying classes may be canceled.
