Popping Bugs Tying Class ($30)
Saturday July 22nd, 11-2:00pm 
Summertime means top water time, and top water means POPPING BUGS! Our exciting new POPPING BUG TYING WORKSHOP will teach you how to tie incredibly effective poppers in a variety of styles for bass, bream, saltwater, and even trout!
Among the flies you'll learn to tie:

- Exquisite small poppers (with rubber legs, of course!) for bream

- Foam-bodied poppers using molded foam bodies

- "Dremel Bugs" -- poppers made with custom-shaped foam bodies that you create yourself!

- Classic balsa-body poppers...and we will "supersize" one for big bass too!

All tying tools and tying materials are provided (or bring your own vise and tools if you prefer). 

Since this is an intermediate level workshop, participants should be comfortable with basic tying skills.  We expect this class to fill quickly, so sign up today!
