Who this course is for:
- Anyone who would like to learn how to tie fly fishing flies.
My name is Kevin Meredith. I am a public school educator and have spent my entire professional career teaching and instructing students. It is an enjoyable profession and one that I hope to combine with my favorite personal past-time of fly fishing. I have been fly fishing the waters of Montana for over 30 years. While in college, I was a member of the Montana Tech. Fly Fishing Club where I honed my fly tying skills and increased my knowledge of most of the western fisheries. Many of my friends have encouraged me to sell the flies that I tie as they have become locally known favorites. I prefer to teach someone how to tie the flies rather than tie for them. A large part of the thrill of fly fishing comes from catching fish with a fly that you created. I find enjoyment in seeing others create and build their skills. For the past ten years, I have been instructing students in fly tying and fly fishing for our local after school programs. I am also a National Fly Fishing in Schools Certified Instructor.
