“Tim Flagler’s Euro-Nymphing:
Basic to Advanced Techniques,
Plus Fly Tying Demonstration”
March 17th, 2021 at 7:30PM
We are excited to announce that our March virtual speaker will be Tim Flagler of worldwide fly fishing renown! Tim will first give us a class on Euro-Nymphing, including equipment, flies, techniques, and strategies before demonstrating how to tie three of his favorite Euro-nymphing flies: the Sulphur Perdigon, the (famous) Frenchie, and Lance Egan’s Red Dart. You definitely don't want to miss this awesome opportunity to learn from one of today’s hottest instructors in the sport of fly fishing.
Tim Flagler is the owner of Tightline Productions, L.L.C., a video production company located in Califon, NJ. Although he produces video programs over a wide range of topics, his specialty is fly fishing. Tim is a well-known fly tying instructor. His YouTube videos are some of the best in the business and his YouTube channel, practicalpatterns.com currently has over 80,000 subscribers and 24 million views. Almost every week he produces a new fly tying or “how to” video which appear not only on his YouTube channel but on Midcurrent and the Orvis fly fishing blog as well. They’re also featured on Trout Unlimited’s national website and in the Orvis Learning Center. In addition, he has a regular column “Beginner’s Masterclass with Tim Flagler” in Fly Tyer magazine. Many of his tying videos take the viewer well beyond just the tying of the fly and show what it looks like underwater, what natural it represents and how it can be fished.
Tim’s a fixture at the Fly Fishing Shows - giving presentations, teaching classes and often as a Featured Tier. He enjoys guiding year round for Shannon’s Fly & Tackle in Califon, NJ and hosts annual trips to Patagonia in the spring and to the Kootenai River in MT starting summer of 2020.
