This is a sure sign that spring is just around the corner: The members of the R.B. Winter Chapter of Trout Unlimited will be hosting a fly-tying training series starting on Jan. 14 at the Christ’s Lutheran Church in Lewisburg.
These two-hour Monday classes begin at 7 p.m. and run through March 18.
For additional information, you may call the chapter president Bob Laubach at (570) 966-3379 or you may speak directly to the class instructor Jim Wagner at (570) 473-9256.
A donation of $10 is requested to cover the cost of of the materials. During the class, you will learn to tie dry flies, nymphs, wet flies and streamers. There will be toolkits available for your use during the class sessions or you may bring along your own kit.
