Learn to tie a fly fishing fly

JASPER — The Dubois County Museum is offering Tying a Fly Fishing Fly with Joe “Swampy” Schoenbachler at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Saturday, June 22.

Participants will try their hand at this age-old art of fly tying and go home with several flies. About four to five artists will be teaching how to tie five or more different fly fishing flies that can be used for fishing.

Stations will be set up in the museum for participants to move from one artist to another learning a specific fly that mimics an insect for fishing.

This activity is open to all ages and abilities. The group will be available in the morning and then take a short lunch break when possible and then return in the afternoon. Admission to the museum will be charged. Admission is $5 per adult, $3 per high school student, $2 per middle and elementary student, and free to those age 4 and younger. There is no extra charge for the program.

The museum, at 2704 N. Newton St., is open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays and from 1 to 4 p.m. Sundays. The museum is closed Mondays.
