Saturday, February 8th, Fly Tying Demo with Wes Ashcraft

Wes and Friend

I work for the City of Pocatello in the “clean” Water Department. I fish for “fun”! I like to find different water and different species especially with my wife and daughter. I tie flies that are simple and catch fish, I love Stillwater, fishing the Snake (not American Falls), but really love a good creek!    I started fly fishing because I got tired of putting worms on my wife’s hooks, naturally she always caught more fish than me!  We fish primarily still water on pontoon boats or from our small boat, but enjoy a nice river or creek now & then.  My wife bought me a fly tying kit for Christmas one year & just started tying flies.  I find fly patterns off the Internet, demos, expos, & YouTube. Social media has also been a great source of reference for me & has helped me connect with some great local people.  Some of the tiers that have influenced me along the way are Collin Carlson, “Wild” Bill Schiess, Shawn Bostic, Aileen Lane, the Fly Fish Food guys, & Gary Barnes.  One of my fondest memories was catching my first fish on a fly I tied myself; now thinking back that must have been the dumbest fish ever!    The flies I will be tying are a variety of my favorite flies, mostly used on still water, but some that I use on systems.
