I have a number of very specific fly tying courses. We can also set up a class according to your interests. Here are just a few more possibilities you may want to consider:
1. The Caddis Fly From Larva to Adult
This specialized class focuses on the life cycle of the caddis and the flies that catch fish during that cycle. We will tie larval imitations, move on to the two primary stages of the pupa - rising and emerging. Finally we will tie the emerged adult in resting, skating, and oviposting phases.
2. The Mayfly
Learn how to tie nymphs, emergers, duns, and spinner phases of the mayfly. We will take into account the various nymphal stages of species, such as the free swimmers, stone clingers, and general suggestive effective nymph patterns. We then move on to the ascending nymph, then to the emerger stages. We will pay particular attention to the dun stage, and finally the adult spinner.
The most vulnerable stage of an emerging insect is at the transition from nymph/pupa to the winged insect. In this tying class you'll deal with that aspect of effective fishing flies for many species such as the caddis, mayfly, and midge.
4. The Midge (Chironomids)
By general definition most fly fishers classify midges as small flies. However midges are true chironomids. In this tying scenario we deal with the stages of chironomids from pupal stages to emergence and adult. This is a great class because it puts you on the right path to effectively coming to terms with midge hatches.
5. Scuds, Sows, & Nymphs In General
There are a number of fly patterns that no fly fisher should be without in the scud, sowbug, and nymph classifications. This class teaches the tying of these essentials from simple hares ear and pheasant tail nymphs as well more innovative fish catching nymph tyings.
6. Streamers & Bait Fish
Almost all predatory fish species may be caught on streamer and bait fish patterns. In this class we tie many of the effective streamer and bait fish patterns with emphasis in learning the skills of forming bodies and wings along with other essential tying techniques. Included in this class is the Davy Wotton shad/bait pattern - a deadly bait fly.
Throughout the history of fly fishing certain patterns have become classics. These wet flies and soft hackles of the past gave me my first introduction to fly fishing. Without a doubt they are some of the most effective fishing flies ever. This class instructs in all aspects of tying these classic styles - tails, bodies, wings, hackles, etc. This is one of my most popular fly tying classes.
8. Terrestrials - Ants, Hoppers, Beetles, Etc.
Terrestrials (land born bugs) form a very important food source for many fish species. You will learn how to tie many imitations of established and credible patterns such as the Whitlock hopper, ants, beetles, and a number of other terrestrials never to be without for many fish species.
9. Salmon & Steelhead Flies
Classic salmon flies are aesthetically beautiful to look at. They also require a high level of tying skill. This class takes you through all of the elements required to tie the salmanoid flies - tails, tags, butts, bodies, wings, hackles, etc. Spey flies likewise require that attention to detail, which you will learn in this class.
10. Fly Tying Techniques
Fly tying skill demands proficiency in dubbing, hackling, winging, deer hair stacking, spinning, etc. In this class we deal with tying techniques instead of any particular pattern or style. You will learn many things that will improve your overall tying.
