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.
Saturday, December 16th, 2017 Matt Klingler
Matt Klingler was drawn to fly tying at a young age. He tied flies for roughly two years before ever learning to fly fish. He’s now been tying flies and fly fishing for over 25 years.An Idaho native, Matt has spent time fishing all throughout the west including Alaska. For several years, Matt and his family called Logan Utah home. It was here that Matt became passionate about conserving our fisheries and joined the local Trout Unlimited group. Matt was a very active member for several years and held many positions in the chapter including Chapter President. During his tenure as President, Matt was instrumental in multiple conservation projects such as negotiating with the ranchers and forest service to fence in and protect the spawning areas of the native cutthroat. His greatest love was spending time with and educating the youth. Matt developed an annual youth fishing educational event that saw over 300 youth attend in the first year and had continual growth year after year. This will be Matt’s first demo at Jimmy’s, so again we will see some new fly tying ideas.
