Winona, MO. – The Missouri Department of Conservation's (MDC) Twin Pines Conservation Education Center will host a fly-tying event Saturday, Jan. 23, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. MDC Naturalist Wyatt Layman said participants will learn how to use natural items, like fibers and fur, to make these intricate works of art. Fly tying is a fascinating hobby, he said, requiring creativity.
"A wide variety of items can be used to make a fly to attract a fish," Layman said. "Some people may be surprised at what they can make and use all on their own."
