We had a great time tying flies over the weekend at Backwater Angler. In our Chesapeake Bay Favorites class, we tied some of our favorite flies for saltwater fly fishing here in Maryland. The tiers learned basic tying techniques and turned out some beautiful flies. We tied clouser minnows, poppers, deceivers, and more.
Backwater Angler in Monkton, MD hosts fly tying classes most weekends in the winter. The classes are a great opportunity for beginning fly fishermen to get involved with fly tying and for experts to learn some local patterns.
