Fly Tying Nights are Back! 2023/24 Thursday Night Fly Tying Schedule

We're super excited for our 9th season of hosting Fly Tying Nights every Thursday through the Off-Season.  We've got a bunch of great Fly Tier's lined up, both local and abroad, as well as our extremely talented shop staff that are unbelievable tiers and teachers.  

Each week we cover either 1 pattern, or one technique (such as spinning deerhair, or tying parachute posts) and we will supply and have all the materials needed for everyone who is coming. As always we provide all the materials, just show up with your vice and the instruction is completely FREE, we simply split the cost of materials between everyone present.  It usually works out to something between $2 & $6 per person.

Free Fly Tying Instruction Every Thursday Night at Calgarys Fly Shop
All experience levels are welcome, and for anyone looking for more individualized classes we also offer Fly Tying 101, 201 & 301 courses (found in the menu bar of our website)
