Saturday Tying Demo – Jeff Bever – 2/3/18

 Jeff is intrigued by the “art” aspect of tying, but insists on being able to fish his creations.  This Saturday he will be tying a few patterns with attention to detailed features, but practical ties you can justify throwing at the fish without risking an emotional breakdown if you lose one!

Saturday Tying Demo – Eric Philp – 1/6/18

“Tasty Snacks are Critical to Flyfishing Success.”

 Full Service!  Eric submitted two recipe lists.  The first (Tasty Snacks I) is for the patterns he will tie on Saturday, including midges, mayflies and leeches, and another menu (Tasty Snacks II) for his daughter’s newly expanded “MeOhMy Coffee and Pie”, 3310 W. County Rd. 54G, LaPorte, CO.  So this spring and summer when you are heading up to fish the Poudre or North Park with Eric’s patterns, you can start your day with a stop for coffee and pie, and maybe even a lunch sandwich to go, before throwing tasty snacks at the fish! 

We are glad to get Eric on the other side of the video camcorder.  He’s been fishing the northern Front Range for many years, and his experience will be reflected in the patterns he demonstrates.

Elkhorn Saturday Tying Demo – Matt Winkler 12/16/17

 

Matt is usually fishing, so we are lucky to catch him at home for a Saturday.  Each year he sends new images of bigger and bigger fish.  What better endorsement of his tying and fishing experience could you want!

You can download a copy of Matt’s tying recipes for this Saturday here: Winkler Recipes for 12/16/17

Click here to review Matt’s bio and recipes from last season.  And images of last years big fish.

With Matt, not everything is trout.  If it’s massive, he’ll be chasing it with a flyrod.

Saturday Tying Demo – Marty Staab – 12/2/17

 

Saturday Demo and Book Signing

Featured Tyer – Marty Staab

“TBD FLIES”

On Saturday Marty Staab will be autographing copies of Steven B. Schweitzer’s eagerly anticipated book “Designing Poppers, Sliders & Divers”  now available in the shop!

(If you prefer, I guess you can wait until Steve’s tying demo here at Elkhorn on March 10 and get the actual author to scribble on your copy)

In between autographs, Marty will be tying  “TBD” patterns, a series super effective flies that fish compete for in any water this side of the International Date Line. 

Actually, the patterns are “to be determined”, but there will be a recipe sheet by Saturday Morning. 


Marty is a last minute substitute for regularly scheduled Mark McMillan, who regrets he is unavailable until later.  I heard he’s on tour with the American Pickers show, searching for new and unusual fly tying materials in the barns of midwestern America.

Saturday Tying Demo – 11/25/17 Jim Rose

 

As a 12 year old in Michigan, Jim showed his early tying efforts to his Sunday school teacher, Art Neumann (one of the founders of Trout Unlimited), who was “not favorably impressed”.   

He’s had some time to work on it, and now we are pleased to have him as our guest this Saturday.  His expertise covers northern Colorado and southern Wyoming, and his tying style and patterns are integral to his success in fishing these waters. 

You can click here for a preview of Jim’s patterns for Saturday!

Join us for a cup of coffee and Jim’s tying demo.  There must certainly be a story behind each of these fish he’s holding!
