Fly Tying
Larry Jurgens

Front Range Anglers is undertaking a major overhaul of the fly-tying section of the shop. We are upgrading all materials and tools while adding many materials and tools that were previously not being offered. So please stop in and check us out. I'll be surprised if we don't have what you need.

In addition, we're now featuring a "Material of the Month", which you can find each month on the website. The December "MATERIAL OF THE MONTH" is "Ice Dub". This dubbing material can be substituted for almost any other dubbing material for a new look. The following is one example that BJ Lester used the material in her November 1, 2003 clinic.

Ice Dub Para-Wulff

Hook: TMC 100 or Dai-Riki 305
Thread: Black 6/0 or UTC 70 Denier
Tail: Moose Body
Body: Peacock Ice Dub-Red Floss-Peacock Ice Dub
Wing: White Polypropylene Yarn (Tied Parachute Style)
Hackle: Whiting Coq De Leon


Another addition to the fly-tying assistance we offer is the "FLY TYING" tab on our website at:

Included in this section are various fly-tying subjects, such as:

  • Fly of the Month
  • Fly Patterns, pictures and recipes that were tied in the clinics so that you can "roll your own."
  • FRONT RANGE ANGLERS Material of the Month, which features at least one pattern recipe that uses the Material of the Month.

When visiting the store, please take advantage of our policy of "Tie Before You Buy", our philosophy of allowing customers to test the MATERIAL OF THE MONTH and our fly-tying vises and tools.

May all your fly-tying endeavors produce results that satisfy you and your quarry!
