FrankenFly at Fall Orvis Days


I will be tying at the Orvis shop in Carmel, Indiana this Saturday, Oct. 3rd from 12:00pm to 2:00pm to celebrate Fall Orvis Days. If you are around the area stop in and say hi. I’ll be tying a variety of streamers and their will be other cool presentations happening. Oh, there will also be pizza and beer! How could you pass that up!?!

I hope to see you there!
See below for more details.


Saturday Events, Oct. 3

12:00 noon – 2:00 pm | Fly-Tying Demonstration with FrankenFly’s Paul J. Beel
Paul owns and runs the website; he’s also a very accomplished fly creator and tier. Paul has fly patterns that were recently picked up by Orvis. Look for these in our shop soon. The FrankenFly website is full of patterns, step-by-step videos, and fly-tying recipes. Come see Paul tie some of his patterns and help us welcome him to Orvis.

12:00 noon – 2:00 pm | Pizza & Craft Beer
Come out and enjoy some of the best pizza in Carmel! Tony Sacco’s will be providing a variety of pies for all to enjoy while taking in a seminar or two. We will also have free beer sampling in the store provided by Upland Brewing Co.

2:00 pm – 2:30 pm | Steelheading within a Day’s Drive of Indy
Fishing Manager Jason Sandlewick will be giving a PowerPoint presentation on a few different wading-friendly places to access steelhead within 4-6 hours of Indy. Rod outfits, access points, fly selection, and techniques will be covered in this class. If you are looking for some spots to chase steelhead this fall and winter, then you will want to be at this seminar.
