 2017-   Initial Chris Helm Memorial Fly-Tying Workshop

                      held at Chris Helm's home
 

(workshop requires several years of tying experience please)
 


With the passing of our very close and special friend, Chris Helm, we have decided it is important to continue the bi-annual fly-tying workshop program in his honor.

The initial program will be instructed by Wayne Samson and Glenn Weisner and will take place sometime during 2017- date to be determined.
 

Current thoughts are as follows:

Saturday-         Working with Hair to tie Trout flies    Note: NOT bass bugs

Our goal is to sit around and talk about various hair types in Chris' honor- and tie a bunch of his favorite hair related Trout flies.    Although we will supply all of the materials, we are suggesting participants bring along any TANNED hair that they have and use for TROUT flies.    Obviously the hair Chris processed was not tanned, but was labeled for specific purposes.    If you have unlabeled TANNED hair, feel free to bring it along so we can look at it and help you determine the best use for it.   Also, perhaps participants might want to trade hair.

 

Sunday-           Unique patterns for Trout

Our goal is to walk you through various fly patterns that showcase unique materials or techniques.......that.......hopefully you haven't seen before.  


Saturday:        10:30am until 5:30pm.  
                          Materials & lunch provided.   

                          *Cookout will take place at Chris' home or Glenn's home (5 minutes away)

Sunday:
        9:00am until 4:00pm.  
                          Materials & lunch provided.


Cost:    A reduced cost of $75.00 per participant / per day is set for these workshops which include all materials and hooks, lunch both days and a cookout Saturday night- plus instruction by both Wayne & Glenn

These classes are on a first-come-first-served basis!     

    Email Glenn Weisner for more information or to reserve a slot.    10 - 12 participants for each class.
