Saturday Signature Series: Dave Student

Learn different skills and patterns every week! Join us Saturday morning 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.

This week we will feature: Dave Student

“Fifty years a fly tier and over 30 professionally has landed me in a dream position.  Working at Umpqua means rubbing elbows with the “best of the best” both in fly design and world-class production. I can’t wait to see what we can accomplish. I look forward to carrying on the fine Umpqua tradition of excellence.”

— Dave Student, Fly Specialist, Umpqua Feather Merchants

Stop by the shop on Saturday the 30th, from 10-Noon and watch Dave spin up some bugs.  We will also have coffee and donuts.
