NEW DATES! INTRO TO FLY-TYING

(AGES 8 & UP)

SATURDAYS, AUGUST 6 & 13, 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM

CHRISTOPHER DEPPA, INSTRUCTOR

$15 MEMBERS / $20 NON-MEMBERS (ABSOLUTELY FREE FOR TEENS!)

In this all-ages class, learn to tie your own flies for fishing in the Umatilla Basin this trout season. The class will teach the hands-on techniques needed to tie flies from readily available materials, as well as introduce students to the insects they are imitating. Students who are 12 years old and younger should come with a parent or older pal—companions take the class for free and get to spend quality time with their young fishing buddies.

Christopher Deppa grew up in a family of obsessive fly fishermen. While pursuing his journalism degree at the University of Oregon, Chris spent his free time immersed in a study of the art of fly-tying. Chris has been enjoying fishing on the Umatilla River since his move to Pendleton last fall.  Chris also likes to hike, play with his dog, and dig in his vegetable garden.
