I’ve received several emails in the last week asking about doing pay-per-view fly tying Zoom lessons — so now I’m throwing the concept out to the subscription base. Is this something you’re interested in, too? I don’t have any details ironed out, but I imagine it would work something like this: I pick a topic/fly, like North Country spiders or sparse striper bucktails or getting started with flatwings or high-confidence nymphs — you get the idea. I’d set up a class date/time — probably an hour-long session — and send the link to everyone who sends me a small fee via PayPal — $10? $20? We’ll have to see how many players we have to make it work. If this is something you’re interested in, please respond in the comments section, and it wouldn’t hurt to list the types of stuff you’re interested in tying. I should also say that if you want me all to yourself, I do private tying lessons for $65/hour. So now, ladies and gentlemen, it’s up to you…
We teach fly tying to the Trout Unlimited group here in Charlotte via Zoom since Covid. We are not charging, but think we might going forward.
I am the advanced teacher, we have a beginner and an intermediate class. We have around twenty to thirty attendees and have been doing this for thirteen years.
Sounds like a great program. 🙂
I’m in for soft hackle – i dont have pay pal – would have to figure that out $10 sounds good, how about a zoom on presentation.
JB, thanks for the response. PayPal is easy…you go to their website and sign up, or you can download the app for for your phone. Takes a few minutes and you’re good to go!
Pay Pal is doable very interested
Excellent! Stay safe, be well.
You can count me in! Especially flatwings and flies for stripers.
Thanks, Michael. Hope that video helped.

Thanks for responding, Charlie. 🙂
I would be interesting in the fly tying events.
Great, Roger. I’ll keep you posted here.
Hi Steve, Yes I would be interested in giving it a try.
We’ll see how it all shakes out. So far the response has been a little underwhelming. I’m not going to do it unless there is a lot of interest.
A pay per view tying lesson , in my option wouldn’t work very well. To many others already going in on you tube for free. However maybe a subscription with the materials sent out for each fly you intend to tie might work.
Thanks for your perspective, Kevin.
Sounds great can’t wait Steve. You must show us that mystery fly THE (SMUT). Hope you and familly have a great CHRISTMAS. have too show me how too pay with pay pal
Thanks, Daniel. We’ll see about the Smut! Many things are possible. PayPal is basically menu driven. If I can figure it out, you can too!
I am interested (would definitely tune in for North Country Spiders and wets/nymphs in general and would probably pass on anything salt-water related). I am curious as to whether these would be “view only and tie on your own later” or “tie-along” sessions (which would obviously depend on the number of participants to see if it is even feasible). The $ figure you suggest is fair and Paypal is fine.
Andy, I appreciate your response and your patience as I navigate this. I think the idea would be that if you can, you tie along with me, a learn-by-doing thing. I think that makes the most sense. In many cases, it wouldn’t matter if a tier didn’t have the exact same materials.
I might be interested in soft hackles, nymphs and saltwater ties. It would be good to give notice ahead of time for materials and/or substitute materials for folks to tie along if interested. It’s already feeling like a long winter here in NH!
Hi Phil, thanks for the response, and your suggestions make sense. That would be my plan.
Definitely interested in saltwater tying, especially flatwings. Thanks!
Thanks, Pat. Stay tuned to currentseams….
WOULD LOVE. TO TAKE YOUR COURSE ON FLY TYING ON THE COMPUTER.
Thanks for your interest Mayson. I’ll keep you posted. 🙂
I AM ONLY INTERESTED IN TROUT FLIES BUT WOULD SIGN UP IN ANY CASE. THANKS
Interested, large SW flies (Skok’s Slobester), basic hooks, threads, etc !!!
Thanks for the response, Frazer. Sorry to disappoint you, but I don’t know any of Dave’s patterns.
definitely would go for zoom fly tying class
Good to know. Thanks for the response!
Count me in Steve. Sounds like a nice idea.
Thanks, John. Stay tuned to these pages.
