The United Fly Tyers of Rhode Island, Inc. is an educational organization, dedicated to teaching fresh and salt water fly tying. Monthly meetings are held at 6:30 pm on the first Wednesday of the month, from September through May at the Knights of Columbus in Warwick. We have tables for beginner, intermediate, and sometimes advanced fly tyers. Materials and tools are provided for everyone who has paid the membership dues of $30 a year. Anyone interested in joining the Club may use them for one meeting before paying the yearly dues.
In December the UFTRI has a Christmas dinner, and our May meeting takes place streamside.
The UFTRI Mission Statement:
"Dedicated to the tying arts and to teaching and learning about flies: how to tie them, their history, and their application near and far".
The UFTRI has fly tying demonstrations and teaching tables at the annual Bear’s Den Fly Fishing Expo in Taunton, MA and the Rhode Island Saltwater Fishing Show at the Providence Convention Center.
