Saturday Tying Demonstration by Mark Mills
LOCAL MAN TO TIE UP HIPPIE CHICKS ON SATURDAY AT ELKHORN FLYSHOP! – Encourages others to do the same!
–Dateline Loveland, Colorado, January 31 2015
Reliable sources tell the Elkhorn Bugler that Mark Mills of Larimer County intends to tie up at least one Hippie Chick between 10AM and Noon on Saturday morning at Elkhorn Flyshop, 3121 W. Eisenhower, Loveland Colorado.
“He’s done this sort of thing before” said Marty Staab, an employee at the shop. “I really think he will go through with it on Saturday.”
A neighbor of Mills who asked not to be identified said “Nice enough guy, keeps to himself. I kinda wondered about him leaving the house before dawn on weekends carrying lots of odd shaped bags and lugging a bunch of 3 foot tubes around. Sometimes he would be gone for days at a time, and his pickup could be dirty and muddy when he got back.”
When contacted, running back Marshawn Lynch of the Seattle Seahawks replied “No Comment. I just answered the phone so I won’t get fined”.
According to Steve Schweitzer of Global Flyfisher, an international website, the Hippie Chick is classified as an “emerging midge”, although the age of Saturday’s individual cannot be confirmed. Rumor has it that the Hippie Chick is #22, which raises questions as to whether Mark may be a serial tyer.

A large crowd is expected.
Refreshments will be served. Law enforcement doesn’t seem concerned, but Eric is likely to bring donuts anyway.
