Dale Darling Fly Tying Clinic
Jan 20th, 2007, 2:33pm
Dale Darling Fly Tying Clinic Feb 10/11, 2007      
The guest speaker at our general membership meeting on February 6 will be Dale Darling. From 1991 to 2006, Dale owned and operated a fly shop near Boulder, Colorado where he has tied countless flies and taught hundreds of fly tying seminars.  
On Saturday, February 10, Dale will be teaching a “Beginners” fly tying class hosted by the Wilderness Fly Fishers. The class will be held at the Westwood Recreation Center in Classroom A from 9:00am to 4:00pm. The Recreation Center is located at 1350 S. Sepulveda Blvd. Los Angeles 90025. Dale will be demonstrating several special techniques related to tying flies for the Caddis lifecycle. He will tie two larval patterns including one pattern with a bead head and another without. We will learn about soft hackle and tie an emerger pattern using this material. The class will conclude with several adult caddis patterns using several wing types—elk, poly yarn and cul de canard (CDC) feathers. All materials for the patterns will be provided. The fee for the class is $50. There will be a lunch break around noon, and all students will be responsible for their own lunch. For more information, please contact Tom Jaggers of the Wilderness Fly Fishers via e-mail at Tom.Jaggers@jerde.com.  
The following Sunday, February 11 from 9:00am to 4:00pm, Dale will teach an  
“Intermediate/Advanced” fly tying class at the Pasadena Casting Club’s clubhouse located in Pasadena in the Lower Arroyo Seco—see www.pasadenacastingclub.org for directions. In Sunday’s class, Dale will be tying Eastern Dry Flies (Catskill patterns) and will conclude with a special “Humpy” tying demonstration. Dale’s presentation on delicate Catskill flies will be a rare treat for our SoCal audience where we tend to tie large, bushy “Western” patterns. We will learn techniques for tying the Quill Gordon (quill body) and the March Brown. We will also tackle one of Dale’s secret specialties—the Coachman Trude. Dale’s technique for tying Humpies will also guarantee success in tying one of fly fishing’s most difficult but most popular patterns. All materials for the patterns will be provided. The fee for this class is also $50 and student will be responsible for their own lunch.

We look forward to hearing from you!
