Phil is an outstanding tyer of the smaller sizes so important to us on the tailwaters of the front range. Join us Saturday when he demonstrates his “No Mercy” midge, and shows us how to get that extended body that turns your Blue Winged Olive dry into a fish magnet.
This year he has a bonus for us – he will demonstrate a useful dropper rig for nymphs in both rivers and stillwaters.
This Saturday our guest tyer is Domingo Rodriguez, who will be tying European style “Czech’ nymphs.
Domingo shares. His tireless and cheerful efforts behind the scenes in behalf of Rocky Mountain Flycasters Trout Unlimited, and another favorite of ours, Project Healing Waters, are truly amazing. Saturday, he will be sharing again, with his tying demo.
Czech nymphing is a relatively new style here in the U.S., but it’s widely used in international competitions. Because it’s deadly effective! Here’s our chance to interrogate Domingo on this style of tying and fishing.
For as friendly and helpful as Domingo can be, he’s gathered a reputation for showing off ( which is what fly fishermen accuse when a buddy seems to be catching all the fish ).
As testimonial to the effectiveness of Domingo’s flies and fishing, here’s a list of people who have complained to me about Domingo’s habit of racking up the numbers even when things are challenging for the rest of the group:
This Saturday we welcome back Jake Ruthven, our annual reminder of how fast time flies! Seems not that long ago he was just a talented kid promoting a high school flyfishing club! Now, he’s a talented young adult, with a pile of credentials, from magazines to flyshows and patterns in books like Modern Terrestrials.
This Saturday is a perfect time to see how Jake has expanded his tying talents.
Elkhorn hosts a guest tyer each Saturday at 10AM all winter, starting in September and through April and beyond. It’s free, and all are welcome. Drop by for coffee and fly tying and fishing talk!

The term “innovative” is insufficient to describe Mark’s tying. He’s talented and accomplished with modern patterns, but just can’t limit himself to coloring between the lines. He finds materials anywhere – JoAnne’s, WalMart, roadsides, and probably even an auto parts store.
Join us on Saturday for the William Wallace of fly tying!
