Come join us Saturday, May 2nd from 12-3pm at Orvis Peabody for a striper fly-tying class hosted by renowned commercial fly-tyer Joe Calcavecchia!  Attend this class to learn from a professional on properly tying three of the most effective patterns for striped bass: the Clouser, Deceiver, and Big-Eye Grocery Fly.  Joe is a production tyer, one of the true masters of fly tying, and the creator of many splendid fly patterns. He has been tying commercially for the past twenty years for fly shops in the New England region. He is also a fly designer for Spirit River. He is a master teacher in fly tying and instructs students with a jovial manner that is always infectious to everyone in attendance. Joe has taken part in many fishing Expos where he has been presented as a premier fly tyer.


The class fee is $20 which includes materials, but students should bring vise, tools, thread and hooks.  Students under 16 are free.  Join us and learn the tricks to crafting flies for every future saltwater fishing season!
