Saturday Tying Demo – 11/18/17 – Dave Mosnik

Dave Mosnik returns as is our featured tyer this Saturday. He’s our Red Feather area expert, and he oversees the membership fishing at properties for Red Feather Storage and Irrigation , a wonderful and handy fishery above Fort Collins.

Dave’s expertise is not limited to Red Feathers.  His stillwater experience covers a wide array of waters including warmwater.

Saturday will be a great opportunity to learn the patterns and techniques Dave has developed, and you’ll want to give them a try at your favorite stillwaters.  (Be sure to inquire about memberships to fish the Red Feather lakes as well!)

Elkhorn Saturday Tying Demo – Keegan Mullen

 

 Don’t miss Saturday – you’ll never meet a tyer more excited to attach stuff to a hook! 

I’m not sure what he plans to tie, but I’m certain one of them will be the biggest fly you’ve seen at our Saturday demos.

Keegan enjoys tying big flies for pike. Even if you haven’t yet delved into toothy critter fishing, there are techniques and tricks to be learned that can expand your streamer tying skills, and probably put pike fishing on your radar for the future.
