During week #5, we learned how to tie a Pheasant tail fly. The Pheasant tail fly uses a lot of Pheasant tail feathers. It looks really cool when it is all done though it was a little confusing to make. The woman pictured behind me is one of the volunteers in my class. She is considered to be one of the world’s best fly tyers.
Week #6 – The last week of the class was probably the most fun. We got to tie a Copper John. This one was really cool because we got to split the tail in half.
I really enjoyed Fly Tying class. The volunteers said that they will have another class in the spring and if there is enough interest, they will do an advanced class. I hope the other kids want to do it again because I would love to learn how to make more advanced flies.
They also have a summer camp in July. I am going to write a couple of essays so that I can hopefully win a scholarship to the camp. I think it would be a lot of fun.
