DCFF Fly Tying
DCFF Fly Tying is scheduled for the 4th Wednesday of every month (except for November and December) in Louisville at Cabela’s and then again on the following Thursday in Clarksville at Bass Pro Shops. Start time is 6:30 pm and class is over by 8:00pm (usually earlier.) Tools and materials are provided at no cost, but feel free to bring your own. Beginners are welcome, and experienced tyers will be available for individual instruction.
Open to the public. You do not have to be a member to attend, so come on out and give it a try and meet some Derby City Fly Fishers members.
New for 2024, all Fly Tying presentations will be recorded so members can participate remotely using Zoom — how neat is that! An updated list of materials will be published for each fly and distributed in a pending weekly email update so Zoom participants can also take part from home or on the road using their own tools and materials.
