Februrary Education Opportunities

Fly Tying Classes Are Underway!
Ron Robinson, Education Chair

Our basic fly tying classes began on January 31 and continue through the end of February. We are teaching some old standards tied in a “new way,” which will include using different materials and techniques. These are always fun classes and free to all club members. We supply the materials and equipment at no cost. Each class is “stand alone” so you can start at any time. Our crew of instructors will be there to help you if you need it. All classes are held at the Sunnyslope Community Center from 7:00 to 8:45 PM. See the Schedule section (page 2) of this newsletter or the website for the complete list. If you have questions, give Ron a call at 602-867-8820.

Casting Class Saturday, February 17, 9:00 AM, Roadrunner Park
Ron Robinson, Education Chair

We will provide basic instruction to all those who are just starting to learn fly casting. In addition, this month we will help you learn techniques for shooting line. The club has equipment for all those in need. As a bonus, Ron will bring some equipment designed for saltwater, ranging from 5 to 12 weight. We tried some of these rods in the wind last month and had a fun time. Our casting classes are held at Roadrunner Park, located at Cactus Road and 36th Street, just off State Route 51. We gather at the northeast corner of the park. Instruction starts at 9:00 AM and finishes around 11:00 AM. If you have questions, give Ron a call at 602-867-8820.
