WELCOME TO THE FLY TIER’S CORNER

The fly fishing club provides opportunities to learn what fly patterns are most effective on local streams and when, where, and how to fish them. Members who are interested can also learn how to tie their own flies, which helps to fight off the winter blues and can be a lot of fun. You can save money and experience the joy of catching a fish on a fly you tied on your own.

This page will be featuring the fly of the month as well tips and techniques as tied by St. Paul Fly Tiers members and guests. See our Fly-of-the-Month archive for a collection of past flies. You can also visit our fly tying video page to see how-to videos that are recommended or submitted by our members.
