Fly Tying Workshop – January 20th

January 20 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Please join us at our regular fly tying workshop held on the third Thursday of each month from 5:00pm to 7:30pm. We meet at the Port Royal Sound Foundation classroom located at 310 Okatie Hwy, Okatie on the banks of the Chechessee River.  Please make a note to check our Event Calendar periodically for information on the monthly fly tying workshops and other upcoming club sponsored events.

On January 20th, with assistance from our presenter Ken Prager, Chair of the Fly Tying Committee, we will tie the Fish-Skull Fantastic Tail Forage fly in white. Tails are available in white, black, chartreuse and tan. A highly versatile streamer fly effective for targeting most saltwater species.

Materials List

  • Hook – saltwater sz 2 (suggest Kona UMS streamer)
  • Fish-Skull Fantastic tail white – one of 4 available colors
  • Fish-Skull baitfish head or fish mask
  • Eyes – Living eyes or other to fit head or mask depression
  • Thread -140 denier color to compliment color
  • Body – cross cut rabbit strip white to match tail
  • Flash – optional
  • Over Wing – optional

These materials are available at our local fly shop or can be ordered directly from Flymen Fishing Company’s web site. Frantic Tails are made of nearly indestructible, ultra-light synthetic suede that cannot be bitten off, will not shrink, and provides lifelike texture and movement when wet. Each suede body is precision laser cut, making each 100% identical and allowing for fine detail. – Ken

Tiers of all levels are welcome from beginner to expert.  If you are so equipped, don’t forget a craft light and your tying gear.  There is no fee required for participation. We encourage tiers to seek out the listed materials at their favorite fly shop. However, we have an adequately stocked “club box” to supplement the tiers’ supplies. For beginners, we also have a number of tying vises and craft lights for your use.
