This year we will again be offering the following courses:

Beginners Fly Tying Class:This is our entry-level class for the persons just getting started in fly tying or who has very little experience. We will cover the basic tools, techniques and materials necessary to tie a variety of basic flies, concentrating on patterns that work well on local rivers and streams.

Intermediate Fly Tying Class: This class is for the intermediate tier who has acquired the basic skills in handling tools and materials either by previously taking a beginners course and/or tying flies regularly for a year.

Tier’s Round Table: The “Fly Tying Workshop” is now the “Tier’s Round Table.” Bring your vise and materials to our Tier’s Round Table, learn a new fly and/or get help fellow members on patterns old and new. The “Tier’s Round Table” is self-directed and no formal instruction is planned. All we request is a donation of $5.00 per session to help defer the cost of the hall.


Fly tying sessions will be held in the American Legion Hall, New Market Road, Dunellen, NJ 08812. Click here for directions.

This course is open to members and nonmembers. We welcome anyone who has an interest in CJTU and/or the sport of Fly Fishing or Fly Tying.

We have many talented instructors who are more than willing to pass on the legacy. We expect to have an instructor for every four students, enabling each person to have a great amount of individual attention.

A list of basic tools, materials and hooks will be provided.

You can sign up at the General Chapter Meeting held on the 2nd Tuesday of each month or contact:

Bart Lombardo:

Our courses are taught in a relaxed atmosphere of camaraderie. We feel that with the patient, guiding help of our instructors, everyone will finish the course with a good working knowledge of how to tie flies.

Please register early so CJTU can plan ahead to make your course a success.

Please remember to bring a light for your vise, lighting conditions in the building might not be as bright as you may like.
