Have you ever been curious about the art of crafting flies that lure in the biggest fish or fish stories? Join our Beginner Fly Tying Series here at Parker Dam and start crafting your own flies (and stories). Our educators will guide you through each step, turning threads, feathers, and fur into your own personalized lures. Connect with nature, learn a new skill, and reel in the excitement!

In this course we will cover roughly 12 fly patterns that will cover the basic skills needed for wet flies, dry flies, and streamers - primarily for trout. This course is intended for those with little to no prior experience tying and is open to participants aged 14 and up. Participants under 18 must have a parent or guardian with them.

This series will be held in our Environmental Education Classroom at the park office on Wednesdays - March 13th, 20th, 27th, and April 3rd from 6pm to 8pm. Registration is required and there will be a five dollar cost per evening to cover the cost of materials, that will be collected when registration is confirmed. All tools and materials will be provided by the park. Class size limited to eight. To register and make payment please contact the park office at (814)765-0630.  Any questions please contact Jeremiah Irvin at jerirvin@pa.gov.
