Join West Denver for their 38th Annual Fly Tying Clinic

The 38th Annual Fly Tying Clinic will be held on February 8th at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds in Golden.  This Clinic has become a staple for the local fly tying community, featuring about 60 of the best tiers from the Rocky Mountain Region including, this year, such local luminaries as Charlie Craven, Pat Dorsey, and Greg Garcia.

You will have the opportunity to learn how to tie a wide variety of patterns from the masters, as well as the opportunity to buy their flies.  There will be a beginners’ fly tying table for novices who want to learn the rudiments of fly tying from experts.  In addition to the tiers, Alan Kube, recently named “Bamboo Rod Maker of the Year”, will be available to discuss the merits of bamboo.

There will also be door prizes, a bucket raffle, silent auction, and a chance to purchase tickets for our “Fantasy Raffle” which offers the winner over $3,900 in merchandise.

Admission is $10 (children 12 years of age or under are admitted free), and $2 discount coupons are available at local fly shops.

Doors open at 8:30 AM.  Food and drinks will be available at the site.  If you have any questions and/or want more information, please check the Chapter’s website at www.westdenvertu.org or call Jon Weimer at 303-830-1609.
