Class size limited to 4 students

Scott Fisher
Date: January 31st , 2015 – 9:00am till 4:00pm ~ Full day class
Scott is one of those rare people who can find intimate detail in things many people would consider mundane. He has applied that ability to his inspection of all the fish foods he can get his hands on. His photograph database of these fish foods goes back more than twenty years and could fill volumes and I’m hopeful they someday will. Scott was a friend to the late Jack Gartside and shared many fishing adventures with him. Under Jack’s tutelage Scott learned many of the intricacies of making flies to imitate all types of fish food and like Jack, Scott is very innovative in his fly designs and in his use of common materials. With his ability as an artist he brought all of these influences together to create some of the most deadly fly patterns, most of which he’s kept secret for years.  I knew Scott for ten years before he showed me one pattern…just one.  It was a jaw dropping moment. During Scott’s full day class on January 31st he’ll be “letting some cats out of the bag”. Scott will be teaching students in this full day class how to tie flies for stripers, bluefish, bonito, false albacore.

Cost: $60.00 per Student ~ Lunch is included
This class is limited to 13 students ~ Payment in full is required to hold a space in this class ~ All tying materials (except thread) will be supplied ~ Students need only to bring their vises, tools & thread

Mitch Kalter
Spey Casting Class
Mitch started teaching our spey casting classes last year and came to us with high recommendation from Topher Brown. He has been spey casting for salmon and steelhead for more than 20 years and is as passionate about teaching spey casting as he is about chasing fish with the long rod. If you are interested in enrolling in this class please call or email our shop to sign up. Payment in full secures a space in this class.

We will offer this class for several dates through April & May (to be announced)

Fly Tying Jamborees
Fly Tying Jamborees are two hour classes that are taught by local guides, fly shop employees, production fly tyers, or local tyers who excel at the art of fly tying. They will teach students to tie fly patterns that they have confidence fishing. I’m excited about the line up of tying classes we are offering this year. We have several returning instructors, Tom Gagnon, Jeff Faulkner, Tom Cormier, Nick Allen, Travis Johnson and Dave Beattie. These guys have so many killer patterns up their sleeves that their classes never become stale. Each one of them spends almost as much time at the vise as they do on the water. They are constantly creating new patterns or tweaking old ones to fool more fish. Their knowledge of tying materials and flies is surpassed only by their ability to bend those materials to their will and fish those flies effectively in their respective waters. No matter where you fish, around the corner or around the world, our instructors will have something new and informative to contribute to your tying and fishing knowledge.

We’ve added two new instructors to our team this year.

*Classes will be held from 1:00pm till 3:00pm on Saturdays *unless otherwise noted*
Cost $10.00 / per student

Students must sign up and pay in advance to secure a seat in class

Lou Tabory
Striper School  
Date: June 13th & 14th

This is one of the best saltwater fly fishing schools on the east coast. Whether you are a beginner or an old salty pro, you are sure not to walk away from this class without increasing your knowledge of saltwater fly fishing.
Lou Tabory is the author of Inshore Fly fishing, Guide to Saltwater Baits & Imitations, and Stripers On The Fly. He is second to none when it comes to chasing striped bass along the coast.  During this class he will offer all of his knowledge to you.
Due to extenuating circumstances at the time of this release we are still uncertain if we will be able to hold this class in 2015. We will be in a much better position to make that decision later this winter. For now we are taking names of those interested in signing up but will not be accepting payment until we are 100% sure that this class will happen. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.
Class Size Limited to 10 Students
Cost: $300.00/student*
Day One: 9:00am till 4:00pm
Day Two: Early am till noonish
*Includes coffee, beverage, muffins and lunch for both days.
