Savery Creek Bootcamps for 2016

Fish all day and tie all night

We're excited to announce our upcoming Fly Fishing and Tying Bootcamps at Savery Creek for 2016. If you haven't heard of the bootcamps before or the timing didn't work out previously, we're announcing the schedule early this year. If you're not familiar with them, we plan everything for you, setting you up with guided fishing during the day and tying flies with us in the evenings. Food, lodging, flies and Cheech's entertaining anecdotes are all included.


The dates and details are outlined below. In the meantime, check out some of the photos...

Terrestrial Bootcamp: Savery Creek Wyoming; June 16th through 19th

The Lodge at Savery Creek

Savery Creek is easily one of our favorite places to fish. We've yet to find a better place where you can entice huge Rainbow Trout to the surface for a variety of dry flies. They have a penchant for terrestrials, so we'll focus on fishing big dry flies. The bootcamp will run from Thursday night June 16th through Sunday morning June 19th with two full days of fishing in there. Rather than this being just a stay in a lodge with some guided fishing, we're going to focus on learning about terrestrials, tying some awesome terrestrial patterns with hands-on instruction, learning strategies and best of all -- taking what you learn and putting it to use on this small stream catching some of the biggest river or stream Rainbows you'll ever see. How about getting a 24 inch fatty rainbow to slurp up the Cicada or Hopper pattern you tied the night before? Yeah, it's like that. Just the fact that you will be fishing juicy terrestrial patterns to huge fish all day should be enough to get your motor running. Forget New Zealand, this is dry fly Shangri La.

  • We have spots for 6 to 8 anglers. First come, first served and spots will fill up fast. If there's enough interest, we may expand to more sessions.
  • The cost will be $1400 per angler for three nights lodging, two days fishing (with guides), food, fly tying materials and flies (if you don't want to tie or want to save the ones you tie).
  • We will provide a few vises but if you have a vise and tools that you can bring, it will be helpful. We will provide all materials. Again, the fly tying part is totally optional. But if you want to get one-on-one instruction from Cheech on how to tie his Project Hopper, it can't hurt.
  • We advise bringing your own rod, but if you don't have a suitable one, let us know and we can make arrangements. We suggest a 5 or 6 weight. You could get away with a 4 weight, but a 23 inch 6 lb fish full of fight will appreciate a beefier rod. 3X or 4X tippet is great.
  • 50% deposit will hold your reservation. Email me: curtis@flyfishfood.com to snag a spot.
  • Contact us for travel suggestions, but you can fly into Hayden, Colorado; Rock Springs, Wyoming; Laramie Wyoming, or even Salt Lake City, Utah.

Streamer Bootcamp: Savery Creek Wyoming; August 18th through 21st






Another pig on a streamer
Once the summer flows have kicked in high gear on Savery creek, the name of the game is big fish on big streamers. While you can still catch a them on dry flies (see above), our goal in this bootcamp is to learn about and catch enormous Rainbow Trout on streamer patterns. We'll also spend plenty of time tying streamers as well. Email if you're interested: curtis@flyfishfood.com

    1. Hi Mike, I believe there are some spots open. We have a couple of groups toying around with booking more spots, but nothing set yet. First come...
