sawdust on the floor for this event folks. You can be sure to have
an enjoyable and entertaining time at the shop. This event is FREE
to all. We will be serving beverages, hot dogs, and burgers(while
they last). A detailed schedule of the days events will be posted
online soon and in our next newsletter.
Kelly Galloup - Kelly started his fly fishing
career at the age of 13, tying flies for the local tackle shop. He
started guiding at the age of 16 and is still guiding to this day;
well lots of years later. He owned the Troutsman fly shop in
Northern Michigan for 20 years. He sold the Troutsman and moved to
Montana where he and his wife Penny bought the Slide Inn lodge on
the banks of the Madison River. Kelly is known for hit ability to
target and catch giant trout in western waters. His tactics have
revolutionized the fly fishing world. His presentations will open
your mind allowing you to take your fishing to the next level.
Brad Bohen -
Brad Bohen grew up a fishy kid in a fishy town. Hudson, WI on
the St. Croix was a Huck Finn-like paradise in the 1970's and
1980's providing all kinds of warm and cold water fishing options
to a kid with a bike and a wandering, fish-filled mind. Fly fishing
dovetailed well into the whatever-and-whenever fishing attitude
that has driven Brad's angling passion to a full-time career;
angling, outfitting and communicating the fishing lifestyle. When
not guiding or fishing, Brad is on the road collecting new members
to his "tribe" of followers. He has established his reputation as
an authority on catching musky on flies as well as other large
predatory freshwater fish. Make sure you come see Brad one last
time before he heads north for the upcoming season!
Kelly will be giving his nymphing by numbers presentation in the
morning and his streamer presentation in the afternoon. Brad Bohen
will be holding a predator fishing Q & A session in the
afternoon. Both will be tying flies and mingling with the crowd for
the rest of the day! Come be a part of history as these 2 guys
change the way folks look at their favorite waters!
