ImageBrilliant patterns of red, yellow, aqua blue, lime green, and feathers and fur, with names like Trout Chow, Wooly Bugger, Deep Water Damsel, and Batman Nymph -- What are we talking about? Flies for fishing. CCA Skidaway will conduct another fly tying workshop with Kyler Gartner (of Rivers and Glen, Savannah) on Sunday, January 28 from 1 to 3  p.m. in The Landings Association’s Conference Room (600 Landings Way).

Kyler adopted the lifestyle of a fly fisher and tyer at a relatively young age. Hailing from North Platte, Nebraska, he  learned the fundamentals of fly fishing from his grandfather in the various lakes and ponds in his home state during the summer months. Kyler grew up in South Carolina and was fortunate enough to experience the outdoors in such a rich environment. When the weather doesn’t permit for fishing, fly tying is a hobby within a hobby that keeps him constantly connected to the water.  

Equipment needed for fly tying includes a vise, scissors and bobbins. Those interested who have fly tying equipment, please bring it with you. If you do not have equipment or have questions or concerns about this workshop, please email Paulette Hamilton (

The cost for this workshop is $10 and is for CCA members only. The workshop is limited to eight participants to offer one-on-one, hands-on instructions.

For anyone interested, Kyler will be teaching an advanced pattern fly called EP Baitfish on January 18 (from 6 to 8 p.m.) at Rivers and Glen’s Suds & Bugs in Savannah, which is open to the public.
