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.

Stop by the shop on Saturday the 18th, from 10-noon and watch Al spin up some bugs. We will also have coffee and donuts.
Saltwater Saturday Featuring Legendary Keys Captain Bruce Chard
There is no doubt fly fishing the flats is one of the most incredible experiences you can have as an angler. The smell of the briny sea in the morning while wading the flats can keep you warm through a cold Colorado winter. Even though Colorado is landlocked in the middle of the country, the ocean is always close to our minds. To help scratch our saltwater itch we’re excited to throw our 5th annual Saltwater Saturday, December 9th, 2017.
Salt Anglers of all skill levels will find something to learn from our local saltwater experts.
Are you new to the Saltwater game? We have excellent saltwater strategy presentations starting at 9 a.m. by Captain Bruce.
If you need to fill a fly box– Don’t miss the Bruce Chard Tying presentations all morning long. Bruce has been a full-time Florida Keys fly fishing flats guide gaining 24 years of experience and counting
Is your Gear Ready?– If the saltwater gear’s been in deep storage during the trout season bring it in and we’ll perform a once over to make sure it’s ready for those bruisers of the flats.
