Walt Mueller Fly Tying Demo

December 12th 10:00am-12:00pm
Ghillies Fly Shop
3314 Austin Bluffs Pkwy
Colorado Springs, CO

Come and visit and learn how to tie eggs the right way.  The master will show you how to tie his soft milking eggs that are fast and durable.  I have seen Walt tie these and this is a demo you can't miss.  We all know how South Platte fish love to eat eggs.  Free snacks and coffee.  Watch in HDTV.  More about Walt. 

Walt Mueller, Jr., aka "The Otter" (always in the water and usually catching fish), has been an avid fly tier and fisherman for over 50 years and resides along the Blue River in the Colorado Rockies. While also known for his many small nymph patterns, Walt has the distinction of developing and marketing the original "Soft Milking Egg" fly patterns to the industry.

"The Otter" initially developed these realistic and deadly milking egg patterns for the Great Lakes steelhead areas that he fishes, they have also proven to be exceptional flies for all the cold water fish species worldwide -- from South Africa, Japan, Europe, Russia, New Zealand, Alaska, Canada, and the entire USA. His Otter's egg patterns are recognized worldwide, and are "Second to None."

  1. Walt gave a great demo today. I was surprised at how many people were there. Great turnout. Walt perfected techniques with which I was experimenting with little success. The use of knitting needles was brilliant making holes in the soft eggs in which to insert beads. I was failing at other attempts to insert beads. Also, my attempts at tying on the egg clusters was much more clumsy.
