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. Next date is February 28th. We will be tying a Pyramid Lake fly!

Flyday Meetups

DFF is developing 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 on March 9th. Grab a table and a drink and tie one on! 5pm to 8 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.

This year it will be December 8th!
