Fly-rod building class and Fly-tying class by local expert Dan Peterson.


Participants will build their own custom fly rod step by step- everything from spinning the rod to putting the final finish on it. When it’s done, participants will have a custom built fly rod perfect for Iowa trout and pan fish. This rod will outperform most mass produced, higher priced store bought rods. Tools for use during the class will be provided. Rod kit includes (one) 8” 4wt graphite fly rod; ¾ wt. reel; and floating line. The cost for this class, including all materials PLUS one fly-tying session, is $250.00. This would make a perfect Christmas gift for the fisherman in your family- gift certificates are available. The class is limited to the first 5 people who pay their fee- others will be put on a waiting list. Classes will be held at Oakland Mills Nature Center on Saturday, January 18, 2014, from 9-5 p.m.; Sunday, January 19th, from 1-5 p.m.; Tuesday, January 21st, at 6:30 p.m.; and if needed, Wednesday, January 22nd, at 6:30 p.m. The fly-tying session will be Thursday, January 30, at 6:30 p.m., also in the Oakland Mills Nature Center. Deadline to sign up and pay for the rod building classes is December 31st, 2013. For more information about the rod building class, Dan Peterson can be contacted at 319-931-2630.
