The patterns covered will relate specifically to our local Puget Sound fishery and are designed to target both Sea-run Cutthroat trout and various salmon species including Coho, Blackmouth and Pink Salmon.

These patterns have proven to be effective in tropical salt water locations as well. The tying instruction for each fly will also include techniques for fishing that have proven successful from Whidbey Island salmon to the saltwater flats of Florida. The following patterns and topics will be covered, but are not limited to:

UV Epoxy baitfish
Salmon smolt (chum baby, bull baby)
Foam Popper
Clouser variations
Spiders and reverse spiders
Application of UV (ultraviolet) glues

This class will increase your overall fly tying skill greatly and the you will come away with an expanded understanding of how to fish Puget Sound with a fly.

Materials (except fly tying thread) will be provided, while the participants are expected to provide their own tools.

Please email us for more information. Happy tying!
