Learn to tie this articulated streamer with Matt Cullen | May 12

Learn to tie an articulated streamer pattern with RFS Instructor Matt Cullen. This is a hybrid pattern Matt has come up with using great qualities from very popular streamers patterns. A little bit Circus Peanut and a little bit Swim Coach.

Matt will share his approach and methods of tying this super effective streamer for the Truckee River. Class topics will include material selection, preparation and tying through the finished fly. You will have the chance to tie along with Matt the whole time and will go away with your own fly.

Cost is $50 and includes all materials and the use of shop vises/tools (if needed). The class fee will be discounted off the purchase of a premium tying vise from the Reno Fly Shop during the night of the class.

Due to the time required to tie and some advanced techniques this class is best suited for intermediate/advanced tyers that know their way around a vise. Limited to 6 Students. Registration is on a first come basis.

Stop by the shop or call 775-323-3474 with any questions.
