Hi folks,

I've been procrastinating about trying fly-tying for the LONGEST time now, but that's about to change. A local fly shop, called Lake Erie Ultimate Anglers, offers three straight days of tying classes for beginners. Each class takes 2-3 hours, with vises AND material provided. The whole thing costs a whopping $20 for all of it. Hard to believe it's that inexpensive. How much of a sales pitch there will be to buy product from them at the end remains to be seen, but it's a pretty nice store. If I'm happy with what I learn and decide to get into this hobby, I'm sure I'll buy some items from them. It really sounds like a great way to "get the feet wet" without spending lots of cash first. Starts next Tuesday night, and I'm looking forward to it.

Does anyone have anything like this in their area? If so, how did you like it? Hoping to get hooked on this, especially for something to do in the cold winter months.
