Owner of Fly Girl Ventures, Guide, Writer, & Fly Tier extraordinaire. Beer and wine will be served and is open to all of our customers.

6:00 - 8:30 PM - Fly Tying Class "Steelhead Intruder Variations" (Space is limited to 8 tiers and requires reservations) - $75.00 (Sold-Out)

Join April Vokey for this intermediate-level tying class and learn to tie contemporary Intruder-style flies from a master. April spend much of the year on the water chasing Steelhead in BC and her patterns are not only beautiful but they catch fish! Space is limited to 8 students and a tying vise and basic tools are required.

April Vokey lives in British Columbia and is an avid angler and steelhead, salmon and trout guide. She was born with an unexplainable passion for fishing. As a young girl she coaxed her father into going fishing and by the age of sixteen, when she was old enough to drive, she was devoting all of her free time to her local rivers.

She is passionate about Spey casting to wild steelhead, the environment and tying Atlantic Salmon/Steelhead flies. She has made it her mission to encourage and introduce aspiring anglers to the sport, in hopes that it will bring them as much pleasure as it has brought her. She takes pride in being an eternal student of fly-fishing.

April is a Federation of Fly Fishers Certified Casting Instructor and fly-fishing columnist. She is the Steelhead columnist for Fly Fusion magazine and the Canadian field editor for Chasing Silver magazine. Her works and photos can also be found in Salmon Trout Steelheader (STS), Field and Stream, Fly Fisherman, Flyfishing and Tying Journal and several other international publications.

She is a lead angler for Fly Max Films where she travels around the world, fly-fishing for every species of fish imaginable.
