The 2019 Denver Fly Fishing Show

It's that time again!!  Once again, I'll be hanging out at the Denver Fly Fishing Show twisting up some of my popular and newer creations such as: The Slim Shady 5.0, The Money Midge, The Pale Ale Midge, The Jedi Master Baetis and the never before seen Super Nova PMD and Baetis.  
I'll also have plenty of Slim Rib with me for sale.  If you see this here, and want some, the blog special price is $2 per bag.   You have to mention that you saw it here though to get the price.  
See you there!
