Steelhead Fly Tying Jam Session ~ Tuesday November 24, 2015


Join us Tuesday, November 24th for the

Steelhead Fly Tying Jam Session at Pacific Angler!


What is a fly tying jam session you ask? It is a relaxed and fun night for tiers of all levels of experience from beginner to expert to hang out, do some tying, share their favourite flies and techniques, and of course talk about fishing.

We will have a variety of expert tiers on hand to answer questions and teach some tricks of the trade.

Scott Baker McGarva will be here and will be tying up some of his favourite winter steelhead flies. Scott guides for steelhead full time and has spent the last few years guiding on the Dean, the Skeena, and Haida Gwaii, so he knows a thing or two about what steelhead like in a fly.



Andre Stepanian from Pacific Angler will be here and as many of you know, he loves his classic flies. Andre will be keeping it old school and will be tying a traditional General Practitioner.


Interested in Intruder style winter run patterns? Dimitri Roussanidis will be at the table tying up his favourite patterns. Dimitri has taught the Intruder Tying Course at the shop the last few years and anglers from around the globe request his flies.


Josh Wolfe will also be in the house tying some of his favourite steelhead tube flies. Josh spent last season up on the Nass and Damdochax and this season up on the Skeena swinging tubes as well as classics.


Last but not least, Pacific Angler’s Matt Sharp will be tying up his renowned black and blue steelhead pattern. Simpler than an intruder but just as effective, this is Matt’s go to fly when guiding for steelhead.


So come on down, enjoy a FREE night of tying and some tasty beverages and snacks with your fellow anglers. All fly tying materials and tools will be 15% off.

When: Tuesday, November 24th from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm.
Where: Pacific Angler, 78 E. Broadway
RSVP: Please RSVP by email to kathryn@pacificangler.ca so we have a good idea of how many people to expect and how many tables to set up for tying.
