SATURDAY FLY TYING DEMONSTRATIONS
OPEN TO PUBLIC– NO CHARGE
10:00 A.M. TO 1:00 P.M., Saturdays from November 25th, 2017 though March, 2018
Each year Jimmy’s All Seasons Angler features this winter-time institution. These Saturday fly tying demonstrations are free to the public. Attending the demos is a great way to learn tying techniques, new and old, and to stay current on the use of materials and tools. The tiers we feature are among the best. Each has great experience in tying and use of the flies they demonstrate. Each is ready to share their tying and presentation knowledge and skills with you.
We began our winter slate of Saturday fly tying demos on Saturday, November 25th. So far we have scheduled tiers up to and including Saturday, January 13th. Take a look below at who is scheduled.Bring your fly tying questions to the shop any time. We have fly tiers on our staff with enough experience to answer any question you may have on materials, equipment, technique, and presentation. On moving through the given dates, we will post a bio for the upcoming tier.

Justin Barnard whom comes to us from Shelley and grew up in Blackfoot. He attended college at ISU. Nine years ago he married a local girl, Kristin, and they have a 3 year old son, Sawyer. All that makes him a local guy for sure! He has been fishing for as long as he can remember and has tied flies for the last seventeen years. His favorites are any kind of streamers and classic steelhead/salmon flies. He also enjoys the pursuit of and obtaining the exotic feathers used in the classic Atlantic salmon flies. He has demonstrated his tying skills at the Eastern Idaho Fly Tying & Fly Fishing Expo among many other shows in the Western United States. He will also be going to the International Fly Tying Symposium this Fall. He is a regular participant in the Bug Club meetings. He is part of the Force Fly Fishing Inc Pro team, Moonlit Fly Fishing Pro Team, and Snake River Fly Pro team. This will be his second tying demo at Jimmy’s, so we are to see another demo that features new techniques and materials usage
