Saturday Tying Demo – 1/21/17

Elkhorn Saturday Tying Demo presents – Matt Winkler

Matt Winkler fishes 12 months a year, and is reputed to come home only to do laundry and earn some gas money.  

 

There aren’t many places within 10 hours of here that Matt hasn’t fished, and probably hooked a big ‘un.  As you can see from the images, his expertise is not limited to trout. 

Join us this Saturday to see his tying demo, and help us get him talking.   With the breadth of his fishing experience, he’s likely to accidentally spill some secrets. . . . .

You can download a copy of Matt’s tying recipes here: Winkler Demo – January 21, 2017


 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!

Saturday Tying Demo 1/14/17

This week – John Pollock

 

 

We got lucky.  I was worried that our Wisconsin transplant John Pollock might cancel his tying demo this Saturday, but luckily the Packers playoff game isn’t until Sunday.

(I almost forgot – wear your Dallas Cowboy apparel to the tying demo for an extra .50% off your fly tying purchases during the intermission.)

The first time John tied for us we had him demonstrate some of his trout patterns from home, but we learned that in these few short years he has adopted the small tailwater flies, spending time fishing the South Platte, Yampa, and other waters throughout the state.

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.”

After 4 months of Saturday demos watching talented tyers craft the latest and greatest patterns, from hotspot euronymphs to life cycle emergers, Chernobyl Thisnthats, and articulated streamers, it’s time for a break.

This Saturday Marty Staab will be demonstrating some frivolous flies, from critters like mice and bees to holiday trinkets such as Frosty and the Spruces.  Most of these will be for looking and laughing at, but there might be an actual trout fly or two.

Since we are all done with holiday shopping, drop by the shop for the demo and a donut, and those last minute gifts for yourself!

 We are open Christmas Eve until 2PM, but will be closed on Sunday.
