The course also covers situational use of these patterns, and where and how to fish them. Intermediate.
This dry fly class will include the Eck Caddis, Tan Rabbit’s Foot Emerger, and Sneaky Spinner patterns. Tom will supply all hooks and materials, but students should bring their own vise and tying tools, plus thread. Tan 6/0 or 8/0 will work for all the patterns we are tying. If you don’t have tan, yellow or brown will also be fine.
