Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) is working with fisherman Bill Orr, who co-authored the book Fly Patterns of Northern New Mexico, to offer a two-day fly tying class, 1-3 p.m., Nov. 6 and 20.
Participants will create their own ties designed for local fishing and receive a free copy of his book. All the techniques are time-tested, local patterns that can be transferred to other locations. All experience levels are welcome, even those who think they are all thumbs.
Bill Orr has been fly-fishing for 51 years and fly tying for 41 years. He learned the skills as a fifth grader and has been doing it ever since.
Space is limited for this class, so register now to reserve a spot. This two-session program costs $32/ PEEC member and $40/non-member, which includes both days, equipment and materials, and a copy of Fly Patterns of Northern New Mexico by Karen Denison and Bill Orr.
