» Tie Flies
Tiers are the backbone of the program and we need your help! We need tiers of all skill levels to help in various ways. In all cases we are able to supply fly tying materials if needed.
learn to tie realistic pest flies and conduct public demonstrations to teach others. We provide demo tiers with lots of support materials – information cards, handouts, banners, etc. We need demo tiers in all parts of North America.
help by tying the flies that we use as handouts when we present the program to the public. At a busy sports show we can easily give away more than a hundred flies a day so we are always seeking tiers who are willing to send us flies for this use.
help by tying the most realistic flies possible. We use these flies to teach about the program. They are especially useful when we present the program to non-anglers who are typically unaware of the ability of tiers to accurately represent any insect. We use realistic flies to accompany magazine articles and in many other ways.
» Spread the Word
The mission of this program is to teach people about the forest pest problem. Fly tying is a great way to gain attention for the education message but the important thing is the message. Forest pests affect us all and anyone can help spread the word.
Everyone has some opportunity to teach others about the forest pest problem. The message is easy to learn and easy to communicate.
We need you to help teach others about the problem. We can provide handout and other materials to help you spread the word.
Help us spread the message to a much larger audience. If you have the ability to help us get media coverage we need your help.
Can you get a story in a fishing club newsletter, a local newspaper or a national publication?
Do you have a blog, website or social media presence where you can promote the program?
If there is any way you can help us promote the story it will make a difference.
Like all conservation efforts, we need to have enough financial support to maintain the program.

We are always in need of appropriate fly tying materials to use in the program.
Hooks, thread, feathers, foam and more are regularly used in large quantities, creating a constant need for these consumable materials.
