Fly Tying Lessons

Professional Fly Tying Lessons by Drew Chicone

Are your saltwater tying skills a little rusty? Could your saltwater flies use a tune up?

One frustration of mine is trying to learn a new pattern or tying technique without clear illustrations or instructions. Books and videos are great, but nothing beats one-on-one attention from a knowledgeable and passionate teacher. As and author of fly tying books, fly designer for Orvis, and tying instructor for many years, I have taught 1,000's how to tie effective saltwater flies.

Whether you're a first timer or a seasoned tier looking to take their skills to the next level, my saltwater fly tying lessons are fun, entertaining and packed full of invaluable fly tying knowhow... And thanks to FaceTime and Skype now I can teach any anywhere! This is a REAL TIME "hands on" lesson not a pre-recorded video. No more pausing low-res youtube videos or wishing there were a few more pictures to figure out the missing steps. Spend some time with a pro..If you didn't catch something we will do it again! With a little coaching and a little practice, your flies will look good and catch fish!

Learn the flies you want to tie at your own pace, and ask as many questions as you like. Improve your tying skills, pick up some new tips and tricks, and understanding of how to fish the flies we create together. Impress your fly fishing buddies with a box full of shadow box quality flies! Both men and women, young and old are welcome and will enjoy learning this creative art.
