The introductory course is for those who are just starting, we will cover the basics, teaching all aspects of fly-tying and the tools needed. You will begin tying simple patterns and learn the techniques of applying materials to the hook. By the end of the course you will have progressed to tying a dry fly for trout and will be ready to move into all levels of intermediate fly tying.
