Description
Nov 12th Paul Prentiss Tying with CDC - CDC is known as one of the best fly tying materials on the planet. Its use in this country got started in the late 1980's, but it has been the material of choice for Europeans since the 1920's. Many of today's patterns draw on the developments in Europe during the 1950's and 60's. Paul will discuss why CDC is such a fantastic and versatile option, and you will see techniques used by many Europeans via videos and commentary. Paul will tie a few patterns each of which will use different approaches to working with CDC. The objective here is to make you reflect on how you can use CDC in your tying endeavors.
Nov 19th Paul Prentiss Special Purpose Indicator Flies - Tired of staring at a bobber all the time? These indicator flies will not only provide increased strike detection, but they will catch their fair share of fish on the water. For Colorado anglers who fish year round, this is a must see.
