'Hooch Micro Streamers Fly Tying Class w/Stephen Tomasovich ($30) FULL!

Tue. January 8th, 6:30-9pm

Want to add some variation to your streamer collection?  In this special tying class Stephen Tomasovich (Big T) will be teaching how to tie mini versions of common streamers with some special twists.  What's the beauty of these patterns?  They sink fast, can be jigged, dead drifted, stripped, and work great for prospecting for trout.

This is an intermediate tying class.  We recommend that participants have already taken our Intro to Fly Tying Class and/or have established basic fly tying techniques.  All materials are provided!
