Fly Tying

Fly Tying Classes

Jimmy’s All Seasons Angler strives to teach and share correct and useful information to our customers about Fly Fishing and Fly Tying. In the spirit of helping people progress in the sport of fishing we offer Fly Tying classes. Our instructors are experienced fisherman and fly tiers who have spent many hours perfecting and improving their personal skills on the water or behind the tying vise. They are patient and more than willing to help you learn and perfect your skills. We believe in being personal with our classes so we limit the class size to 6 people. This allows our instructors to give every student enough personal attention while at the same time offering the student a group price for the class.
