Saltwater Saturday powered by Hatch

October 3 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm


Presentations, Demonstrations, and Gear Checks!

Learn from and meet some of the best!: As fall begins to fade to winter, many of us get tarpon, bonefish, and permit on the brain. Are you one of those salty dogs who makes the trip to the big blue multiple times a year? Or are you sick of freezing your digits in the winter and considering an escape with the family to someplace where you can bring your fly rod? Either way, our Saltwater Saturday on Oct. 3rd, 2015 will have something for you! In addition to our own experienced staff, we’ll also have a special guest at the shop; Capt. Bruce Chard!

  • Just getting into saltwater fishing? Catch one of the presentations by Capt. Bruce Chard to fast-track your understanding of saltwater fishing.
  • Already have saltwater gear? Bring your gear in and our saltwater specialists will take a look at your back tackle and make sure you’re ready for any upcoming trips. Have a knot on a reel you haven’t fished in a few years that you just don’t trust to a monster tarpon? We can help!
  • Already heading to a new destination? Come browse the Front Range’s largest selection of custom saltwater fly patterns and check out the newest saltwater gear! While you’re in, don’t forget to take a look at the latest saltwater rods to hit the market, the Scott Meridian, the R.L. Winston Boron III Plus, and the well proven Sage Salt!
  • Want to win some great schwag? Our friends at Hatch have graciously provided all kinds of goodies for us to give away during the day.



Capt. Bruce Chard

Capt. Bruce Chard will be taking time out of his busy guiding schedule to bring some of that hard earned knowledge north! He’ll be on hand doing presentations and demonstrations all day. As an extremely accomplished saltwater angler, he will be a great resource to learn from whether you’re just starting out or a seasoned salt veteran.
