Tying with Synthetic Fly Tying Class Rescheduled for May 4


There’s no greater pleasure in fly fishing than catching a fish on a fly that you tied.

Join us May 2019 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm to learn from Master Fly Tyer and Renzetti Ambassador David Schmezer. David has been teaching the art of fly tying for over 30 years, and is by far one of the most knowledgeable fly tyers in the southeastern United States. During this class, he will share with you what techniques set him apart from others. Dave not only creates beautiful flies, but flies that are well balanced and successful when targeting any species.

If you have been interested in getting into fly tying, join us for this introductory level class.  David will cover all of the basics you will need to learn more about tying with synthetics and grow as both an angler and fly tyer. 

Lily Renzetti will join David by introducing the class to the tying equipment; from the advantage of a True Rotary vise versus a non True Rotary, to using a bobbin cradle and threading a bobbin. David will then teach how to tie the shrimp version of his original Synducer pattern. 

After, Caley Smith will go over the basic anatomy of the shrimp fly and demonstrate the benefit of tying with synthetic materials. We will end with a Q&A session and a company tour will be provided at the end of the class.

Tying equipment and materials will be provided for this class.  Feel free to bring your own reusable water bottle and snacks, refreshments will be provided.  

Ages: 8 and up. 

This class was originally scheduled for April 13. Due to unforeseen circumstance we had to rescheduled.
