If you have never touched a fly rod before, or if you have some experience but want to learn more about fly fishing, this class is for you.  The class is informal, fun and class size is limited to 15.  We will have both classroom and On-stream instruction.  No equipment is needed.



Fly Tying Class

The Fly Tying School teaches the basics of fly tying and students will tie several new patterns each class.  The class is appropriate for those new to fly tying as well as those who want to brush up or improve their skills.  Classes are taught evenings at a local school.

Speakers, Trips and Special Events

Each monthly meeting features a speaker or event that will expand your knowledge of fly fishing.  Topics range from fishing techniques such as streamer fishing or Euro-nymphing to fishing destinations such as Montana, Chile or our own local streams.

CWCTU sponsors both day and overnight fishing trips.  These trips are a great way to get to know other anglers and share experiences and techniques.

We also have fly-tying events where you can learn fly tying techniques or just marvel at the skill of some of our members.
