COME ALONG TO Dally’s Ozark Fly Fisher on February 1 for a limited seat, hands-on tying class with the hottest streamer tyer in the country right now Blane “Mr GameChanger” Chocklett.
The Gamechanger articulated baitfish has become one of the hottest flies since it was unveiled at the Fly Tackle Dealers Show in Las Vegas in July and yet won’t be released on the market until January. We have been selling plenty of materials but now you will be able to get the opportunity to learn fro the master.
We are stoked to get Blane in here for the class, and he will be also part of the tying talent for the Streamer Lovefest that evening. Blane is a fly innovator for Umpqua Fly Merchants and Temple Fork Outfitters advisory staff and we are grateful to both companies for helping make this event possible.
Blane’s class will cover the GameChanger and other fly patterns, including his Gummy series. The price will be $80 a head and limited to 8 people. Bring your vise, a tying light and tools. All other materials are included in the cost of the class.
I’ve talked with Blane a number of times over the years, writing for magazines, and the same thought strikes me every time. He is one of the most humble unassumed but incredibly fishy characters around “the industry”, and has a real passion for teaching and sharing information. For such an innovative guy, he spent more time talking about the Gamechanger bring a platform for other tyers to develop their own flies.
You will have a lot of fun in this class as well as learning and I doubt there is anyone who wouldn’t be wanting to spend a day in his guide boat after spending a day in his company.
Blane is also on the Pro Staff of Clear Cure Goo and Fly Men Fishing company which produces the articulated shanks for the Gamechanger. We had confirmation today that Clear Cure Goo owner Brian Carson will be back for the Streamer Lovefest as well.
It promises to be an incredible weekend.
