Over the past several decades, fly fishing has become a popular form of fishing, espeically in the Western United States.  With the vast amount of fabled rivers, streams and stillwater fisheries spread out across the Pacific Northwest, both men and women have taken up the sport of fly fishing. 

Each year, the interest and intrique in catching both freshwater and saltwater species of fish on flies continues to grow.  With that said, the professional staff at Worley Bugger Fly Co, has been educating fly anglers for over two decades on the art of catching fish with flies.


Fly fishing is a progession.  Like any sport, the more you practice and participate, the better your skills improve.  As fly fishermen advance their skills, the interest in producing your own flies becomes a point of interest.  Catching fish on the flies that you created, is a thrill and a concept that drivers the sport of fly fishing and fly tying.

The WBFC Fly Tying 102 course is also a progession.  After, you have completed the beginning 101 class and your skills and methods of practice have improved, the desire to create more intricate patterns is an evolution in your own fly design.  In the Fly Tying 102 class, you will be introudced to new materials and new techniques that will allow you to improve your skills.  Here you will learn and practice more advanced methods of fly tying which will aid you in crafting a wider range of fly patterns.
