We have teamed up with Paul Roy to offer a beginners fly tying course. The course will run from February 5th through March 5th meeting on five Tuesday evenings at either the YCFGA lodge or President’s club. The course will provide you with basic fly tying skills, a tying vise and tools that will be yours to keep, and enough fly tying material for the duration of the course. The cost is $85.00 per person and is open to members & nonmembers. Space is limited. Registration and payment is required by December 25th. For class registration or more information contact Marc Gilbert at 207-423-5177 or email@example.com
