The chapter has conducted or sponsored a number of fly tying events for members, from beginners to advanced tiers. Some of our monthly chapter meetings have been devoted to fly tying. Also, small groups sessions have been arranged for more intensive instruction for fly tiers.
The chapter has purchased a dozen fly tying kits with tying materials to loan out to beginning tiers. Also, once per year, usually February or March, the chapter holds its monthly chapter meeting in conjunction with John Rochus’ fly tying get-together, at the Sippo Lake Library building in Canton. The three hour long meeting includes a session where expert fly tiers demonstrate how to tie selected patterns. Members and guests bring along their vises, tools and materials and learn to tie these patterns.
