Saltwater Saturday Sponsored by Hatch Reels this Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm!

Captain Bruce Chard
FFF Master Certified Fly Casting Instructor
Presentations, Demonstrations, and Gear Checks!

Learn from one of the best in the fly fishing industry! As fall begins to fade to winter, many of us get tarpon, bonefish, permit, and GT’s on the brain. Are you one of those salty dogs who make the trip to the salt flats multiple times a year? Or are you sick of freezing your fingers 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 November 17th, 2018 will have something for you! In addition to our own experienced staff, we’ll also have our special guest here at the shop- Captain Bruce Chard! Just getting into saltwater fishing? Presentations on strategies for bonefish, permit, tarpon and GT’s by Capt Bruce Chard to fast-track your understanding of saltwater fishing.  Sandwiches and Suds will be available over the lunch hour!

  • Need to know how to get your line to punch through the strong ocean breeze? Participate in Capt Bruce’s casting demonstration for tips and tricks to put your fly where you need it when you need it to be there.
  • 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 or GT? 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 best saltwater rods to hit the market, the Scott Meridian, the R.L. Winston Salt Air, and the well proven Sage Salt HD!
  • Want to win some great schwag? Our friends at Hatch have graciously provided a Generation 2 Hatch Finatic 7 Plus that will be given away at 4 pm*!

For the past 25+ years, Bruce has been guiding anglers all over the Florida Keys and beyond.  His specialty on the Florida flats is sight fishing for tarpon, bonefish, and permit. Bruce’s on the water instruction is certain to put any level angler on a variety of species.
