Guest Speaker: Adam Omernick Topic: Fishing Northern Colorado.
Adam is owner of NoCo Fly Fishing and is a Product Designer and Tenkara Guide Trainer with Zen Tenkara and Zen Fly Fishing Gear. He has been fishing all his life and is passionate about teaching and sharing his experience and knowledge with others.
As an International Federation of Fly Fishers Certified Casting Instructor, Adam has worked with people of varying skill levels to introduce them to fly fishing and help them perfect the art of casting.

He believes tenkara is the perfect venue for becoming an excellent angler as it allows you to focus on reading water, fish habitat, presentation and landing fish.
Guest Fly Tier: Judson Knowles
Judson has been tying and fly fishing since he was 8 years old. He is a husband, a father, a lover of the outdoors, and a catcher of fish, sometimes…
He was lucky enough to attend the Beginner & Intermediate Fly Tying classes taught by Ray Johnson in Southern California in the late 70’s. The first fish he caught on a fly was a sucker on a Renegade that he had tied in class. That feeling has never left; the excitement and joy are still present, even today, hundreds of trout later.
Judson says “I am amazed every time I catch a fish on a fly that I have tied. It isn’t so much that I have “fooled” nature, it is more about something I had offered up, made of twisted fur and feather that was deemed “good enough” by a wary trout lurking below. I love to share fly tying with others and gain just as much as I give. I have a heart for soft hackles and woven body flies. I find fly tying relaxing, sometimes frustrating but it always rewarding”.
