AKRON – Are you interested in learning how to tie your own flies for fishing but you don’t know where to begin? If so, you are invited to join experts from the ODNR Division of Wildlife Feb. 19 to learn the basics of fly tying.
The free class will take place from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. at Wildlife District Three, 912 Portage Lakes Drive, Akron. Materials and equipment needed for the class will be provided to participants.
Summit County Wildlife officer Aaron Brown, who will be leading the class, will show you the ropes to creating your very own flies including the Adams (dry fly), woolly bugger (streamer), pheasant-tail nymph, and bead head prince nymph.
According to Brown, “all of these patterns are fairly simple for the beginner, and can catch anything from bluegill, trout, or bass. I use them often!”
Seating is limited so please pre-register for the class by calling Ken Fry, Division of Wildlife at (330) 245-3030.
