Default Fly tying class at my school!

I wanted to share something that I was about to take on and see if there were any member that might be interested/able to get on board and help out.

The high school I teach at has changed the daily schedule to allow for a 50 min time slot every day which is called the "iPeriod." This period is designed to allow students the opportunity explore an opportunity or a passion that they would not normally get the opportunity to experience. We have over 70 different iPeriods lead by teachers and students ranging from Painting to BBQing. I have personally led Boardgames, Sign-language, Creating an escape room in the school, and Campus Golf where we used foam practice balls and played golf around the campus.

This next rotation I am offering a "Fly-Tying" iPeriod. I have 10 students who are excited about learning to tie flies. I have been able to gather up 8 vises and sets of tools but I am in need of Simple materials like thread, wire, hooks, beads, and feathers. I have talked to BIG T about getting an order together but I wanted to also ask if anyone had any stuff laying around they would not mind donating.

We have a lake on our Campus and we are planning on fishing at the end with our flies we have created.

PM me or call/text me at 706-346-1994 if you are about to help out!

Thanks Guys!
Justin

OK NGTO tyers; really hoping we can overwhelm Justin with our generosity here! If you have some spare materials (and I know you do!), please consider sending something to Justin. And if you are heading to the fly shop soon, pick up some new stuff to send to him.

Justin, I am sure I can come up with something to send to you. Shoot me a PM with your mailing address.

Hey Justin, this is awesome! I can donate a pack of hooks and glass beads that'd be perfect for some zebra midges. PM me your mailing address and I'll send it on over.

Touch base with the Coosa Valley TU folks there in Rome. They would probably like to help out. You could also do fly casting as well.

P.S. Merged the threads so everything is in one place.

Update on Fly tying iPeriod....I have a student sponsor who is actually a female from Alaska! I am so excited that I have some girls that are interested. This opportunity has now also extended to our "Photography iPeriod" who wants to take some macro pictures of our flies. Pretty awesome!
