John Collins and Jim Holland of Shannons' Fly Shop in Califon, NJ will be hosting a new program they have developed for anglers and fly tyers to improve their tying skills and become more effective trout anglers when fishing the Northeastern major hatches. The classes also include the opportunity to return to the newly restored private waters of the Raritan Inn, and fish those hatches this spring.
John is an accomplished angler and fly tyer, best known for having developed his "Electric" fly series of nymphs and subsurface patterns. Jim is also an accomplished angler and co-owner of Shannon's Shop, who fishes the South Branch of the Raritan River several times a week throughout the year. I fish with both of these guys, and there's no doubt these classes will be very informative and fun - I guarantee you will learn some great tying and fishing techniques, and have some laughs along the way.
The program will be held over three nights on February 25, March 4 and March 11, 2013 at the beautiful Raritan Inn, on the banks of the South Branch. Cost is $100.00 per session or $250.00 for all three and includes dinner. Call the shop for more information and to register - 1 (908) 832-5736
