The Ramblings of a Fly Fisherman

Fly Tying With Charlie Craven

I finished fly tying classes with Charlie a few weeks ago; however, I am just getting around to posting my thoughts about my time spent there in the shop.  Honestly, I couldn’t say enough good things about the experience.  Classes were well thought out, fun, and did an excellent job at building a good skillset and a strong foundation.  When I first signed up, I thought that I might get a little bored as I had already worked my way through most of his first book. This was not the case at all.  I find now that I have taken the class, the book provides a good outline of his tying techniques, but the class fills in all of the holes or gaps in the training.  There are lot of tips and tricks that Charlie discusses and demonstrates that will bring your tying skills to the next level.  I would recommend this class to anyone that is serious about tying great flies.
