Come compete at our annual fly tying contest or feel free to spectate and heckle three time winner Paul Scherner! This is always a fun event. Main part of the competition is that tiers will have to complete a fly with unusual materials that they will not know until handed.

The Tyathon will start at 11:00AM at The Original Brooklyn’s at Mile High Stadium, 2644
W. Colfax Ave, Denver CO and last approximately 3 hours.
Registration and setup will start at 11:00AM. Tying will start at 11:30AM after coffee
and many sugared treats.
A kit with material and recipe for the fly will be handed out at the start of the contest. All
flies are conventional flies used in the west for fly fishing.  A time limit of 2 hours for completion of all flies.
Tiers will need vice, tools .and black, white, grey, and orange thread. 8/0 (70 denier) or
smaller thread is recommended. Bring a lamp if you think you will need it.
UV resin or fast drying head cement may be used. Please be careful with any adhesive
Please preregister by emailing Ralph  Rhoades at rwrhoades2@comcast.net so we will know how many kits will be needed.

    I’ll be there to defend, but with so many good tiers, I’m thinking my days may be numbered
