Class was in session last night on the historic Yale University campus. Only instead of pencils and books, there were vises and hooks. And pizza. What would a little Monday night fly tying be without pizza? Anyway, I did two tying sessions with the members of the Yale Fishing Club. We started each one with an abbreviated version of my seminar, “Wet Flies 101.” And then, we hit the vises and tied a simple soft hackle in the traditional North Country Spider format. Some of the members had only rudimentary tying skills, but we made it a no-fail, no-worry zone, and I think everyone had a swell time. I know the instructor did!
Excellent! Was Sean Callinan running that group?
Sean is, I believe, a co-runner of the group with Tom Migdalski.
It’s good to see a group of young people interested in fly fishing.
You bet! This is the next generation of anglers, and I was stoked to hopefully get them a little more interested in fly fishing and wet flies.
Well done Professor Culton!
Thank you. Everyone passed the class!
