Spring Break Fly Tying Camp

Two of the things we love the most - Fly Tying and Spring Break!
This camp is a great way for youngsters to spend three days of their spring break learning or practicing the skill of fly-tying. Warm weather is JUST around the corner, so stocking up on flies before fishing season is perfect! Please consider this camp for your child's spring break plans!
