Learn to tie Mayflies at a special class this Friday night

Bennett Spring State Park will host a Mayfly fly tying class, beginning Friday at 6 pm. Future dates include April 17, May 1, June 5, July 10, Aug. 7, Sept. 4 and Oct. 2. The class will provide instruction on tying a basic fishing fly. All supplies needed to create the fly will be provided but participants are welcome to bring their own. This activity will allow people to enjoy the art of fly tying as well as learn from experienced Bennett Spring fishermen and women. Each participant’s first six flies will be donated to The Mayfly Project, which mentors foster children through fly fishing. A $5 donation for the “Fly of the Night” supplies is suggested. Donations collected will provide supplies and support for Kid’s Free Fishing Day. Local foster children in Lebanon, Missouri will benefit from the group’s labor in 2020. The Mayfly Project is a national 501 c3 organization that uses fly fishing as a catalyst to mentor children in foster care. The monthly Mayfly Project fly tying nights will be held in the Bennett Spring Church of God Annex, located across from the park office from 6 to 9 p.m.
