The Kryptonite Caddis

The Kryptonite Caddis is one of my signature patterns.  These things have only been around for a couple of years now, but they have been in very high demand.  I just delivered 21 dozen to Royal Gorge Anglers in Canon City, CO on Friday.  I am not sure how many are left.
It's been a great fly for the annual caddis hatch as well as a good looking attractor on other rivers.  I've fished it on the Arkansas River as well as the South Platte and it has accounted for some nice numbers and nice fish.  If you are interested in buying some of these, please contact Royal Gorge Anglers to get some.  I am not currently selling them direct as I am out of beads and pretty much out of time!

TroutPorn Podcast with Shea Gunkel and Hopper Juan

In case you missed it or didn't know about it, I was fortunate enough to sit down with Steve from Trout Porn Nation and my good homie Shea Gunkel to talk flies, fishing and food.  You can access the podcast several ways and even download it to listen later.  Hit the link and it should be available right there to start.  Thanks you for your time of you stop to listen.

41st Annual West Denver Fly Tying Clinic

Tomorrow I am going to be in Denver at the 41st Annual West Denver Fly Tying Clinic.  I've been privileged to be a part of this event for 8 or 9 years now and love going to see my old and new friends.  I'll be tying some of my "secret" new patterns such as the Kryptonite Caddis and the Slim Shady series.  If you have noticed, photos and instruction on these patterns are like Bigfoot photos.
I hope to see you there!!  Info below.

The Fly Fishing Show

Once again, it's that time of the year when we all make the trek to Denver to attend The Fly Fishing Show.  I'll be there again tying flies all three days.  I'd love to have you stop by and say hi.  I'll be tying some old patterns, some new patterns and some in between.  Maybe it will be one of your favorites.  
I'll also have a few Hopper Juan Tying kits for purchase.  
I am looking forward to seeing you there.
