Beginner Fly Tying Class

Once again, we’ll be offering a beginner level fly tying class this winter. It begins on Tuesday, February 10, and runs for eight consecutive Tuesdays, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at our Rockport store. The cost is $65, and students will need to have their own vise and tools (available for purchase here at Maine Sport). All are welcome, with a minimum age of 10 years old. The instructor is fishing department manager Paul McGurren, who has been teaching these classes for well over 20 years! The class is relaxing and fun, and it’s a real thrill to start catching fish on flies that you’ve tied. For more info, call Paul at 236-7120 or email him –
