New England Fly Tyers

... To foster the art of fly tying, to promote the challenge of fly fishing, and to encourage conservation and sportsmanship.

NEFT Fly Tying Course


Our 2022 Fly Tying Course begins February 14!

Please refer to the Calendar of Events for the full schedule. 

The Course includes a copy of the New England Fly Tyers Manual of Fly Tying.  All materials for the course will be supplied for each lesson at the club only. Students must use their own materials for tying at home and must supply their own fly tying tools. We do have a few tool kits for late enrollees for use at the club until they have a chance to obtain their own.

The primary teaching tool is the NEFT Video Manual of Fly Tying backed up with the printed manual. Head instructor Jim McKenney will be assisted by other members acting as class monitors, thus assuring personal attention when needed.
