Have you ever wanted to learn to make your own flies for fishing the streams of the Roan Mountain?
Roan Mountain State Park Ranger Phil Hyle will teach a fly-tying for beginners class Sunday, Feb. 18, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Participants will learn the basics of the art of fly-tying and make their very first fly. They will also be introduced to some of the more common aquatic critters that flies model by turning over a few rocks and leaves in the Doe River and getting a close-up look at the dinner menu local trout enjoy.
The class will be limited for five fly-tyers at a fee of $20 per person. Participants can register at the park office.
Parents if registering a youth are asked to stay and assist the minor during the class.
The class will be held at the Roan Mountain State Park Visitors Center, and participants can meet their host on the porch.
