Skip will teach a special hands-on fly-tying seminar on nymphs
at The Fly Fishing Show in Lynnwood, Washington
(February 14, 2016).
This is nothing like Skip's usual tying seminars in which often 40 to 80 attendees, or more, quietly watch Skip tie on a screen from their seats--in this class, you and only a few other tiers will sit down with Skip, face to face, and tie together.
Pre-enrollment required, maximum of 10 students, 2 1/2 hours, $80.

Fly tying and fly fishing are equal parts fun, art, information, and fascination. Whatever tips and lessons Skip has learned at the vise or by the stream, you'll find them here.
We are Skip Morris, the down-to-earth author of eighteen books on tying flies and fly fishing (including the best-selling beginner's book, Fly Tying Made Clear and Simple), and
Carol Ann Morris, whose artful photography and detailed watercolors have been published in
major fly fishing magazines (ie, Gray's Sporting Journal and Fly Fishing & Tying Journal), and also in Skip's books and articles.
We're a husband-and-wife team who've been fishing together for over twenty years, and we love sharing our passion for fly fishing. We'll provide you with clear and simple instruction to make your journey into this sport fun and informative.
If you want to learn how to tie the Turck Tarantula, you'll find instructions here. The Miracle Midge? It's here too.
So are the Articulated Leech and the Hackled Skip Nymph.
All are effective, intriguing flies, and there are many more.
Every tying step is explained with clear and simple instruction through detailed text and up-close-and-personal photographs, and that makes tying these flies easy to learn.
There is also instruction on how to use big attractor flies to motivate large trout to strike, how to catch salmon off of Washington's
wild coast, and how to work chironomid-pupa imitations deep in a lake where big trout live.
There are many other techniques we'll share based on our experience on the water, and these tips will help you hook more fish and have more fun doing it.
