Minturn Anglers hosts fly-tying lessons for brand-new tiers as well as folks who are just looking to hone their skills and learn some new techniques.
We offer two options for classes:

  • A two-hour class, typically done in one session. We recommend these for those who have done a little tying on their own or have taken a class before and are looking to grow their basic knowledge or work through some struggles they might be having at the vise.
  • Our four-hour class is typically done in two 2-hour sessions and is geared towards those who have done no fly tying on their own and are looking to learn the fundamentals of tying and the tools and material needed to get started. This class will teach students from the ground up how to tie basic trout flies useful in our local rivers while simultaneously learning the basics of how to tie tails, build tapers, finish flies to ensure their durability and much more.
