We have a great day planned for our Winter Open House Event. Kelly Galloup and George Daniel will be our star hosts for the day. We will also have manufacturer reps and the Mossy Creek Fly Fishing guide staff on hand to talk product and fishing.
The Open House event is FREE for anyone to attend.
10AM DOORS OPEN- We will have Krispy Creme Coffee and Donuts waiting for the early birds that arrive.
12PM-5PM Kelly will be at the fly shop tying some of his favorite and most productive patterns. Come watch and learn the techniques to tie these flies and inquire about the best way to fish these patterns. Cactus Wooly, Flat Liner, Mini Boogie, and the Nancy P are on the list to tie.
10-11AM- Shop presentation based of George’s new book, he discusses the lessons and tips he’s learned over the last 6 years. Euro tactics, suspension tactics, rigs, tools, reading the water, reading the drift, and other helpful tips are included in this program. George also discusses when to break the rules regarding European nymphing.
3-5PM- George will demonstrate tying six of his favorite current “GO TO” nymphs patterns, along with answering questions on rigs and tactics. George will also have books to sell or happy to sign any previously purchased book.
FOOD– Brian is whipping up a massive amount of homemade chili we have done in the past. Accompanied by chips, cheese, chives, sour cream, and drinks, you will be warm, full, and happy hanging around the fly shop!
BEER- It just wouldn’t be Mossy Creek Open House without 3-Notched Beer! Keg’s get tapped at lunchtime.
5PM- Close, unless you want to hang around and help clean up! 😉
