Our friends at Umpqua have come up with a great way to help us pass the time as we quarantine. They have arranged live fly tying demos with some of the best tyers in the sport! Check out their press release below.
“We feel that people need fly fishing now more than ever. The escape, the clarity and focus that you only find on the river are needed for our community to feel sane. While we realize that not everyone can get out on the water for a variety of reasons or local restrictions, we want to provide our community with a fun escape via fly tying.
To do that, we have launched a series of live tying demos on our Instagram page. They have been engaging, super fun, with great storytelling, and incredible instruction. This is a unique moment as our Family of Signature Tyers who are typically on the water working day in and day out are largely available. With this pause, they are able to share stories, their passion, techniques and promote their guide business, shop, or their signature flies. Make sure to tune into Instagram @umpquafeathermerchants and join in on the fun, support our family of tyers, and local shops where you can get your fly tying gear.
We are all one angling family, tune in.”
