    My dad and I are looking for a class that will teach fly patterns and reading water. Does anyone have any suggestions?? hopefully in the tacoma/bremerton area

    Most fly shops have classes. Probably the nearest to you are the Northwest Angler ( in Poulsbo and the Morning Hatch in Tacoma. They aren't my local shops, but I think they both have classes on fly fishing.

    Tightloops is right, you will learn how to tie flys and perhaps many other good things at your local fly shop.

    But to learn how to read water and how to use flys for different species, your best bet is to find a competent and experienced teacher, who will give you on the water instruction.

    May I suggest you check out

    Dennis Dickson is well known for his, on the water, fly fishing classes. Your learning curve should be considerably diminished by signing up for one.

    My son and I will be taking one of his winter classes in November, and we are really looking forward to the education.

    Hey there,
    Mike Martin(son of Darrel Martin) puts on a great class for both stream and stillwater flyfishing at the Morning Hatch in Tacoma. My advise would be to talk to him personally. He's there tuesday through saturday and 'd be more than happy to answer any of your questions.
