I posted this in the fly tying forum also. The Clinch River Chapter of Trout Unlimited is holding it's annual beginner fly tying class beginning Monday January 14th in Norris, Tennessee. The class lasts 5 consecutive Monday evenings. These folks know what they are doing and you will learn a lot. They have 4 openings right now. For information or to sign up call Buzz Buffington at 865-463-7167. I know a lot of people who have taken this class and loved it.
