Sean Dahlquist is one of the most accomplished fly tiers we have ever met at this early stage in life. His flies are pieces of art work that are impeccably tied with dedication to detail and creativity. He is a traditionalist with materials, preferring to use real seals fur, polar bear, blue-eared pheasant, McNeese hooks, Lagartun tinsels and other premium materials for his creations. We're very excited to have him host this fly tying course, and we're confident that those who take it will be getting a real bargain and an experience they'll never forget.
Sean's class will focus on classic spey flies that are both beautiful and effective for summer run steelhead. Each session, Sean will lead the group in tying 3 flies per class. The first will be wet flies, the second hairwings, and the third spey flies. Due to the complexity of the flies being tied, some experience is preferred. Beginners should look at taking "Olympic Peninsula Fly Tying Course" before taking this class.
All hooks and materials will be provided.
Tools you will need are:
Bobin & thread
Scissors (serrated preferably)
Session 1 - Burlap, Knudsen's Spider, Spectral Spider
Session 2 - Polar Shrimp, Green Butt Skunk, Drain's 20
Session 3 - Sol Duc, Orange and Pink Spey, and possible a marabou spey if the first two don't take too long
You can sign up for one class or sign up for them all, but we strongly suggest signing up for all three as techniques are built on starting from class 1, and joining just the last class can result in one person being behind. To help you get there, we're offering all three classes at a bundled discount price of $195 or $75 for individual classes. All materials are included making this a huge bargain.
