The Advanced Fly Tying Class taught by Fishwest is a two-hour lesson that takes place once a week for three consecutive weeks. This course is geared towards anglers who have a solid understanding of fly tying processes, including the whip finish. Similar to the intermediate lesson, the advanced level focuses on one fly pattern per class, however these patterns are more detailed and use additional materials. Our Advanced Fly Tying Class allows students to experiment with materials and even request certain patterns, and it’s the only fly tying course in the Salt Lake City area that offers instruction for an articulated streamer pattern! This lesson also covers how to slightly change each pattern to imitate a different life cycle stage, plus hacks to make the fly tying process easier. The patterns chosen for the Advanced Fly Tying Class are all go-to’s for fly fishing in the Salt Lake City area, and students will leave with flies that are useful year-round, as well as the skills to craft more. All the tools needed for constructing flies are provided, but if you have your own fly tying equipment, you are welcome to bring it as well.
