Mark DeFrank has a couple fly tying demonstrations and classes coming up that should be great if you can make it. Mark will be tying at International Angler, Saturday, September 28 from 10am – 4pm. The venue is FREE to the public and he encourages you to bring your vice and join him at the tying table and learn some of his Signature Steelhead Patterns and Techniques. If you have any questions, feel free to message him. Location: 5275 Steubenville Pike, Pittsburgh, PA 15205
Also, October 19th at Chagrin River Outfitters, the time is yet to be determined. Details will be announced in the near future and more details will follow. Just check Mark’s website, DeFrank’s Flies and Guide Service.
