January 25 – A FREE Fly Tying Demo with Brandon Mena (Feather_Flinger)

What: FREE Fly Tying Demo with Brandon Mena

When: January 25th at 6:00

Where: Reno Fly Shop (238 S. Arlington Avenue, Reno)

Details: Brandon Mena (IG Feather_Flinger) from FeatherFlinger.com and Fly Fish Food will be in the shop to do a fly tying demo on some effective nymph patterns and one of his most popular streamer patterns the Slider Bugger. [more details below]

Slider Bugger

Brandon is fishing Pyramid Lake for a few days and we convinced him to show us how he ties some of the amazing patterns you might have seen on his Instagram account, his website or by watching one his videos on the Fly Fish Food YouTube channel.


This will be a super low key and social event. Much like other Happy Hour events we have hosted this will get going right after we close the shop and Brandon will start tying about 6:30. This is a BYOB event.

Anchor Caddis

Brandon will tie about 4-5 flies. We hope that he will tie 3-4 Euro Nymphs and one of his signature deer hair streamers (Slider Bugger). This will be similar to his YouTube videos but you will be able to ask questions live and heckle Brandon as he ties.


Again this is a FREE fly tying demo/Happy Hour event and the first monthly event we have planned through the winter in the Reno Fly Shop. If you have any questions or need more details give us a call or drop us an email.
