2018 Greater Cincinnati Fly Fishing Show
Fly Tying Workshops
Information and Registration

(enrollment button at bottom of page)

For 2018 we will be offering a total of five 2-hour tying workshops. For all workshops, you must provide your own vice, tying tools including (but not limited to) hair stackers, adhesives including head cement and brush-on super glue, magnifier if desired (especially for the Friday sessions), light (power will be available), as well as your tying threads. For types of threads required, see the descriptions below. All other tying materials including hooks will be provided.

You should be at least an intermediate-level tier, having completed an entry level tying program (or equivalent) and be an active tier, i.e., you have continued to tie flies since your last class. It will be assumed you know the basic principles of tying flies and are reasonably proficient in their use.


Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018

The Thursday workshops will be led by Mike Schmidt, owner of Angler's Choice Flies.

    Thread Required: 140 denier UTC or Danville thread. Color really is irrelevant as it gets covered up entirely,
    but tan, black, or olive will cover all the bases.
    Adhesives: Brush-on Super Glue and a super glue gel like Loctite Gel Control.
    If you have it you might want to bring some UV set adhesive, but Mike will have some epoxy if we need it.
  • Session T-1: Mike's Signature Streamers       2 - 4 pm
    MR Simba (4.5") - mid-sized articulated streamer
    Goon Slider (2.5") - salt shrimp slider easily modified to be used as a smallie crayfish or carp bug
  • Session T-2: Mike's Signature Streamers       5 - 7 pm
    Viking Midge (6" or 4") - meaty articulated pattern
    Foxy Baitfish (3") - new bug that is a bombproof baitfish pattern developed for salt but equally solid for all fresh species that chase baitfish
