The first Fly Tying 101 class at Orvis Sevierville as been completed! Six happy new fly tiers are about to join the weird world of fly tying. Yes, I’m sure there will be some fido clipping, dryer lint sifting and even boa deconstruction happening. We’ve all done it and finding materials in weird places is half the fun.
Fly Tying for me serves a similar purpose as fly fishing. It is a quick escape that takes me away for small moments. While I’m at the vise, I’m thinking of past fish I’ve caught or the ones that got away. I’m thinking of new fish I might find and places that I want to explore. Fly Tying for me is simply not just making something to catch a fish; it is about the adventures it reminds me of and the possibility of making new ones.
