'Tying in the Pines'...a new streamer class offering

Over the last few months there have been a few shows in Michigan that I tied at. For those shows I had the pleasure of hanging out and talking a little shop with Greg Senyo the evening before the shows as he graciously allowed me to crash at his place. One thing we were kicking around was the idea of an all inclusive streamer tying weekend. I am happy to announce that Greg and I are teaming up to offer 'Tying in the Pines'!

'Tying in the Pines' will be a streamer junkies dream for the six participants that sign up. We will have a bonfire going to welcome them as they show up, on that Friday evening, to the Senyo family cabin outside of Russell Pennsylvania. The tying instruction will start Saturday morning and extend through in to the evening with breaks every few hours so we can kick back and enjoy beautiful northwest Pennsylvania. Saturday will also include a session in which we demonstrate how these flies are to be rigged and correctly cast, then likely end up with another bonfire riverside. Finally we will have a final tying session on Sunday morning and wrap things up by noon.

This is to be an all-inclusive workshop that gives the participants a broad knowledge base of streamer tying and rigging techniques. We will cover single hook flies and multiple articulated techniques as well as stinger flies. Greg and I will be providing two nights lodging, food, beverage and materials...all you need to bring is your vise and tools. The cost for this weekend workshop has been set at $275 and is limited to six participants. If you are intersted in signing up for this event please give me a call at 614.638.6727 and reserve your spot.
