Devan started his journey in the outdoors at a young age in southern Utah and truly found his passion for fly fishing while living in Colorado. Since starting in the fly-fishing industry Devan has managed a couple of fly shops, guided full time and owned a fly shop in Colorado. A few years ago he was the assistant manager at Henry’s Fork Angler in Island Park. He has been fortunate enough to be a member of multiple pro staffs and is currently a member of the Loop USA Trout Team and the Loop Global Pro Team. Devan is an accomplished fly tier and fly designer having multiple fly patterns with Solitude Fly Company. He is also very passionate about photography and filming anything that has to do with fly fishing or the outdoors. Devan and his wife Jasmine have traveled throughout the country pursuing any fish that will chase a fly. He is now introducing his son Emmett to the great outdoors with an emphasis on the joys of fly fishing. Devan’s last tying demo at Jimmy’s took place on December 28th, 2013, so look for some new patterns he has come up with in the last six years.
This concludes our 2018-2019 Saturday fly tying demo schedule. You can also see it posted in the shop, and on Facebook. Look for it in the Idaho Falls Post Register Outdoor Page Calendar “Coming Up,” published each Thursday.
