METHOW SKILLS: Fly Tying with Leaf Seaburg

Methow Skills is excited to invite you to a fly tying workshop with local fisherman, guide and host of the KTRT Fishing Report, Leaf Seaburg. Leaf has been fishing the Methow for over 30 years and showing locals and visitors alike all the best the river has to offer as the owner and operator of Methow Fishing Adventures.

While it may be too chilly to convince you to don those waders and hop in you can put these long winter nights to good use by learning how to tie some of Leaf’s favorite bugs (make sure to ask about his Seahawks Chironomid)! This two hour workshop is suitable for all from the fly tying novice to those looking to improve their skills!

The workshop will be held in the Education Station (Building 9) on the TwispWorks campus. Pre-registration is required.
