The West Denver Chapter of Trout Unlimited is proud to present its 41th Annual Fly Tying Clinic on February 11, 2017 at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds. This event features over 50 of the best tiers in the Rocky Mountain region, including local luminaries such as Charlie Craven, Pat Dorsey, Greg Garcia, Landon Mayer, and contract tiers from Umpqua Feather Merchants. Price of admission is $15 at the door, $10 with a $5 discount coupon from a local fly shop. Children 12 years of age and under are free.
There will be door prizes, and we will have our giant bucket raffle with new and lightly used fishing items. You can also purchase raffle tickets for our “Fantasy Raffle”, a package valued over $4,000, featuring a custom-made bamboo rod and a vast array of fly fishing accoutrements.
In addition to our noted tiers, we’ll have Alan Kube, recently named “Bamboo Rod Maker of the Year”, to talk about the merits of bamboo. And, Jonathan Walter, an IFFF certified master casting instructor, will be available to help you hone your casting strokes.
Finally, come hungry! Our veteran kitchen crew will be cooking brats and sloppy joes for you to purchase and, for the first time, thanks to the generosity of Upslope Brewing, beer for sale. Many thanks to Upslope for this sponsorship.
All funds raised by this event go to the Chapter’s Clear Creek restoration efforts, its education activities, and to its myriad community outreach programs.
