Saturday Signature Series – Featuring Dave Student
November 8, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm MST
It’s officially fly tying season!
Learn different skills and patterns every week! Join us on Saturday mornings to see some of the best tyers around spin up their signature patterns. Each week will offer up instruction, patterns and techniques for tyers of all levels. We guarantee that you’ll learn something new at each and every one! We will see you there with fresh coffee and hot patterns for Colorado and beyond.
With over 800 square feet devoted to tying tools and materials, FRA has the largest and most comprehensive tying inventory in the region.
Join us this Saturday as we host Umpqua signature tyer, Dave Student. As a follow-up to our Saltwater Saturday event, Dave will be tying a few of his favorite patterns for the salt and explain why he chooses the materials he does and how they affect the presentation at the most critical point of the hunt.
Dave is a self-proclaimed tying “junkie” and has been tying professionally for 25 years. He is considered an expert on trout and salt water flies and in addition to having fished all over the Rockies, has spent plenty of time on the water in the Florida Keys and Belize. Dave loves to fish the salt and believes fishing for trout is a great way to keep your skills current in-between trips to the big blue. Conversely he believes fishing salt water makes you a better trout fisherman, since you typically have to analyze the situation before you take your one best shot. Dave’s simple and practical approach to tying and fishing results in patterns that are extremely durable, easy to tie, and fun to fish!
