Fly Tying

Fly of the Month


The club gathers at Oak Grove Park wilderness center to tie a select fly. For the nominal fee of $5 you get enough supplies and instruction to tie 3 of the chosen pattern. Patterns are often geared towards our outings or towards the fishing season. Fourth Wednesday of each month at Oak Grove Park Nature Center, 6:30 to 8:30 starting in October and going through May.

Flyday Meetups


DFF is holding a Flyday meet up at House of Coffees for an open tying night. Come and join us for coffee, tea or craft beers in a relaxed setting where your can tie your choice of flies and chat it up with fellow fisherman on the second Friday of each month. See you at House of Coffees in Lodi. Grab a table and a drink and tie one on! 5pm to 7 pm 

Beginning Fly Tying Classes


The club periodically runs a beginning fly tying series. This is geared for the development of basic tying skills, tools and knowledge while introducing the new tier to commonly used flies. Develop your skills and knowledge in a supportive environment! 

Intermediate Fly Tying


Have you done just enough tying to develop a few bad habits? Are you not sure where to go after your intro class? This is the class for you- the flies get a bit smaller and the techniques get more involved but the fun and support are free flowing- Look for the series on our calendar.

In Our Midst


The club has some well known tiers! Our very own Bud Heintz, professional fly tier puts on an annual clinic where he shares his favorite flies as well as tips, tricks and engaging stories of fishing and tying.
