Since so many folks are working at home, we’ve launched a series of Facebook Live fly-tying events as a way to connect. The fifth “Fly Tying with Tom” event happens TODAY at 3 p.m. (EDT) on the Orvis Fly Fishing Facebook page.

If you need to stock up for these events, we’re offering FREE shipping on all fly-tying materials.

For each event, we will announce the pattern and the recipe in the morning, so you can get everything in order to be ready to tie along with Tom Rosenbauer, broadcasting from his home fly-tying station. Today, Tom will be tying a Tunghead Hot Spot Pheasant Tail Jig. Here’s the recipe:
