COME TIE WITH US: ANDY FORD 9TH FEBRUARY

COME TIE WITH US: ANDY FORD 9TH FEBRUARY

As part of our new Facebook Live Series ahead of the start of the season, join Andy Ford on Wednesday 9th February at 12pm on the Orvis UK Facebook page, to learn how to tie 4 early season flies.

Four Early Season Flies

These flies use some similar materials (CDC and deer hair) and some not-so similar to produce four early season crackers.

There are two dry flies and two nymphs to help you target fish, both on the surface or under it.

Here are all the materials you need for the four patterns. Andy will be tying them all in a hour-long session, so please come and join him.
