Saturday Tying Demo – 5/9/15 Casey Prather

What to do on a rainy day in May?    How about a Saturday Doubleheader!  

 Hang out at a flyshop and watch Casey Prather tie flies, then stick around for a presentation by Tom Sabol on an interesting “Front Range Trout” App he designed as a resource for the flyfisherman.  

Casey will begin tying at 10AM to noon, and we can expect a crazy variety of baitfish patterns, including at least one he’s going to tie with an airbrush!  Many of us know Casey from JAX, and we always enjoy his enthusiasm for the fly and flyfishing.

Shortly following Casey’s demonstration, Tom Sabol will give a 30 minute presentation to  introduce us to an App he designed covering the South Platte River drainage, which includes the St. Vrain, Big T, Boulder Creek, and Poudre rivers, plus tributaries.  

” Front Range Trout” gives anglers a step by step path to intelligently fish the Front Range waters of the South Platte Drainage. This application has hundreds of access points for waters on the Big Thompson River, Boulder Creek, South Boulder Creek, Clear Creek, Cache La Poudre River, and the South Platte River proper, and its many tributaries. More water than you could fish in a lifetime, as well as hatch charts and pattern recommendations for the rivers and streams.

 (And if that’s not enough, I think he’s working on training it to tie #26 midges!)
