FLY TYING WITH CRAZY UNCLE JEB - Simple Extended Body Streamers - 1/18/24

We have been so delighted and energized to see the absolute outpouring of support and participation you all have for our fly-tying event, Tie a Fly with Crazy Uncle J.E.B. We have heard your feedback. We want to create a resource where those who attended the tying night could revisit the flies tied and purchase any materials. We'd happily set you up if you wish to attend but need help!

This fly-tying night companion is for our 1/18/24 event, where we focused on simple, extended-body streamers. 

If you want to attend one of these FREE Fly Tying Nights, please join us at The Pisgah Tavern at the HUB on Thursdays from 3 pm to 5 pm.
