Phil Rowley Course, March 14-15, 2020

I am really excited to announce that Phil will be coming to Prince George on March 14 and 15th, 2020 to teach a 2 day course on fly tying and fly fishing.

Phil Rowley needs no introduction. He's a permanent and valued fixture in the fly fishing and fly tying world and we are very honored to have Phil share his knowledge with us in this class.

As time progresses, I will be bringing in more guests such as Dennis Gamboa (Beginner and Advanced Fly Tying) and Rob Texmo (Atlantic Salmon Fly Tying) so keep watch for those classes as well.
There also will be door prizes as well for students to win throughout the 2 days donated by Phil Rowley's and Chinook Wind Outfitter's connections.
