Marabou Tying Class

A few weeks ago I was luck enough to have Faith Roland in my boat on a trip to the Hoh river. For those of you who have not met Faith she has been mentored by the legends of the sport in the art of Steelhead fly tying and when you look at her fly box you realize the teachings took root. The flies Faith ties have to be seen to be believed, they are beautiful and effective. She is especially fond of Marabou patterns and can put a Marabou fly together which puts my friends and I to shame. Happily she has agreed to put on an evening class in the art of tying with marabou. The class will be Wednesday February 12, 6:30-9:00pm, at River Run Anglers 3946 Tolt Ave Carnation, WA (425)333-4446. Go to for directions if you need them. Best of all, the class is FREE!

Please email or call me at (425) 922-5413 to reserve space.
It is not important how you fish but that you fish....

Speyman, Would you be kind enough to take notes and or pictures for those of us on the east coast? Maribou is one of my favorite materials and I'm always up to learn more about using it.

Faith is an excellent tyer, and unless I am mistaken, she honed her tying skills under the tutiledge of her at one-time fiancee Joe Butoric. She is also a very good fly fisher and a very nice human being.

You are correct...

Joe and Faith spent much time on the river together and Joe was probally one of the most underrated fishermen of our time...Joe was a great steelhead fisherman whether it was with fly or gear and Joe was also an excellent salmon fisherman.

Plus, Joe asked for no fame and was very humble...he was also always so open with his knowledge.

Anyways...sorry about my tangent!...Joe is greatly missed!

Yes, I miss seeing Joe and talking to him too. Anytime I ran into him, whether on stream, a show, or a shop it was an enjoyable and informative visit. Although those of us who knew him also know that Joe had no time for pretenders or braggerts, and he would dispatch both with his sharp tongue. Faith on the other hand has always been the gentle lady.
