Beginning Fly Fishing Presentations with Adam Omernick

Adam Omernick will be giving a presentation on fly fishing for beginners. The presentation will give any one the basics on how to get started in the wonderful sport of fly fishing.

Adam is a Certified Casting Instructor for the Federation of Fly Fishers. If you have questions about casting or need some help improving your fly cast, Adam is the man to talk to.

Along with casting demonstrations, Adam will also be offering beginning fly fishing clinics. If you are interested in one of Adam’s clinics head on over to the NoCoFlyFishing booth and get yourself signed up. Adam will also be offering guided trips throughout Colorado.

site updatesAn Introduction to Tenkara with the Graham “Tenkara Grasshopper” Moran

Tenkara is an ancient form of Japanese fly fishing introduced to the United States in 2009. For those that are attending the Colorado Springs Sportman and Boat Expo, there is the chance to learn tenkara from one of the early adopters of this fly fishing technique. Graham discovered tenkara shortly after the introduction of this style of fly fishing to the United States by Daniel Galhardo.

Graham will be doing a number of casting presentations on the casting pond in association with NoCoFlyFishing and Dragontail Tenkara. He will also be offering an Introduction to Tenkara presentation each day.

If you have an interest in tenkara and wish to learn more, Graham will be at the NoCoFlyFishing booth. He will be offering Weekend Tenkara Clinics and guided tenkara trips.

NoCoFlyFishing will also be selling Dragontail Tenkara rods and equipment at the Expo in their booth. You can get your gear and purchase a space in a clinic all at the same time.

303 Fly Works303 flyworks

Have you ever been curious about tying your own flies for fly fishing? If your answer is yes, then stop by the 303 Fly Works booth.

Every day of the Colorado Springs Sportsman and Boat Expo, 303 Fly Works will have a full complement of fly tiers sharing their favorite patterns and techniques. You can learn about everything from traditional tenkara kebari patterns to streamers and dry flies.

Some of the tiers will also be giving demonstrations in the presentation theatre on how to tie up a pattern or two. Check out the schedule at the show to find out who is tying what.

303 Fly Works will also be doing something special to thank our service members active and veteran alike. Every fly tier at the booth will be offering their flies for $2.00 each. Sales will be donated to the Colorado Springs Chapter of Project Healing Waters.

This should be a great event. I know NoCoFlyFishing, the Tenkara Grasshopper, and 303 Fly Works are really looking forward to being a part of it. We all hope to see you at the Colorado Springs Sportsman and Boat Expo 2018.
