Jim is a northern Colorado/southern Wyoming veteran with a world of experience fishing these waters.  You may remember his previous demo featuring “Bob’s Average Nymph”, one of my top five favorite fly names.  This season he will be tying distinguished flies from his history figuring out the North Platte:

“These flies include several of my old favorites from decades of fishing the upper North Platte in Wyoming and a couple of excellent, lesser known patterns for Front Range streams.  The old favorites are my variations on some classic patterns that don’t get used much today.  I threw the rainbow smelt in for fun.  It’s a great fly for really big brook trout in the Nipigon River, where the world record brook trout was caught.”

 Elkhorn Flyshop presents a fly tying demonstration  each Saturday at 10AM, from September through at least April, featuring some of the most talented and notable tyers in Northern Colorado.  It’s free!  Join us for fresh coffee, a donut or cookie, and some amazing demonstration tying.
