Manchester, VT – Visit the American Museum of Fly Fishing this Saturday, March 10 at 10 AM to learn about tying feather-wing streamers with pro tier Peggy Brenner. The Museum is located at 4104 Main Street in Manchester, next to The Orvis Company store.
Peggy will show you how to step up your tying with a more advanced feather-wing streamer pattern. Many tiers find it difficult to properly align the feathers with streamer patterns. Peggy will show you how to master it!
About Peggy Brenner:
Peggy Brenner has been tying flies professionally for a more than a decade. While her specialties are flies that fish well in New England and the Florida Keys, she began with the basics, progressed to classic Maine streamers, and now ties salmon flies. She currently is a member of several pro teams, including Whiting Farms, Daiichi Hooks, and Nymph-Head Beads, and gives fly-tying instruction, presentations, and demonstrations all over the United States.
