Memorial Day weekend is upcoming.  Many folks are wondering if the cool, wet weather has made back country roads passable and if certain campgrounds are open. Certainly you can try USFS web sites such as that for Caribou-Targhee National Forest, but up to date information may not always be present on these. For up to date information on Caribou-Targhee National Forest roads and campgrounds try the following offices:

Tying Demo 3-3-18

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 fly tying demos on Saturday, November 25th. So far we have scheduled tiers up to March 10th which will be our last this season. 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.

                                                                 2017-2018 Fly Tying Demo Schedule Completed

It was a fun season with several fly tiers demonstrating for the first time at the shop.  We began on November 25th, 2017, continued through a cold, blustery December,  on through a mild January and most of February, and finished during a wintry first week in March.  Attendance was excellent and well-behaved.   Demonstrating tiers  were the same as well as generous.  All this means that we will resume our tying demos next November. Again the demos will feature  excellent, personable tiers, and we will invite the public to attend.   Watch our web site and Facebook to see the date 2018-2019 our tying demo season begins.
