FFI Silver Level Fly Tying Certification

30 Dec 2021 5:48 PM | Jim Kazakoff (Administrator)

Congratulations to BVFF member Bob Harder who recently passed the Fly Fishers International Fly Tying Group Silver Level Award certification. This certification requires a juried examination of six different fly patterns tied by the applicant.

The FFI Fly Tying Skills Awards Program provides FFI members with the opportunity to develop or reinforce their fly tying skills and test their progress against a consistent, standard at three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold.

At Silver level, tyers must be able to tie a wider range of flies, using more complicated materials and techniques to produce more intricate patterns and closer representations of specific prey species being imitated. The degree of consistency and the standard of the techniques applied must be a clear step higher than at Bronze level.

And yes, that is a lot of thread!!
