Local News News & Updates

      The Orange County 4-H is holding a five-week fly tying program beginning in January 2020. This is an excellent opportunity to learn the basic skills needed to tie flies for use next spring when fishing season opens.

      The five-week program begins on Thurs, Jan. 9 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. and will take place at Cornell Cooperative Extension Orange County, located at 18 Seward Ave., Ste. 300, Middletown, NY.  This program is open to youth, ages 10 to 17, and adults.

      Fly tying is the art of tying string, yarn, thread, feathers and other materials to a fish hook in such a manner as to create a lure that resembles various insects that fish are attracted to. The program is for beginners as well as those who have tied flies before. Necessary tools will be provided, those who have their own tools are encouraged to bring them.

      The fee for the course is $20 per 4-H member or $35 for non 4-H members or adults.  Register at www.cceorangecounty.org. For more information call DeAnna Sardella at 344-1234 or send an email to  ds2285@cornell.edu.
