The Carson Fly Fishing Club is beginning a basic fly tying class on March 5, 9, 12, 16, 26 and 30 at 7 p.m. in the Ormsby Room in the Carson City Sheriff’s Office, at 911 E. Musser St.
The purpose of the class is to learn basic techniques of tying different flies. No experience necessary. The flies for this class will be wooly worm, muskrat nymph, zug bug, elk hair caddis, royal wulff and hopper.
Stan Zuber has been tying flies for more than 25 years. He learned to tie flies while being a member of the Aguabonita Flyfishers in California. This will be the 13th year that the Carson Fly Fishing Club has presented this class free to the public.
For more information, contact Zuber at 882-9027.
Flycasters safety class is tonight
The monthly meeting of the High Sierra Flycasters will address a couple of topics important to people who fish the mountain streams and lakes.
First there is a presentation by Bob Macias and Nick Summers addressing streamside safety, First Aid, and common emergency situations.
The second presentation will be by Liz and Don Weirach of the Anglers Edge. They’ll talk about equipment maintenance and preseason tune up. The duo also will talk about new gear. The equipment available for fly fishers increases constantly, and there are often significant changes, especially in rod and line technology.
