Fishing Skills

Fly-tying is a great way to customize a fishing lure to a specific type of fish or a particular stretch of stream. It’s also way to get an added sense of accomplishment knowing that you caught a fish with a lure you made. MDC Conservation Educator, Sam Stewart, will provide tips on materials used as well as techniques, and will also discuss how flies are effective lures for a variety of sportfish species.
