Brian Yamauchi...Innovative Fly Tyer and Photographer!

When you think of an amazing Fly Tyer, Brian is the man!

Most who view his flies always ask "Is that an actual fly or an imitation?" translation, You can't tell the difference! Brian can be found most weekends at many fly tying events in the region such as the Denver fly fishing show, Peak tying event, the popular west denver TU tying clinic and many more. How good are his flies? Well I borrowed a few for our last Delaney Buttes trip and caught a majority of my fish and the biggest on his Chironomid patterns! Can't wait to get back out on the water with you and Kudos for your fly being featured in Flyfisherman Magazine this month also.

Brian is also known for his photography

After a long conversation last week with Brian and Mark Lance, another well known photographer; we were discussing some Photo tips and how their work is so impressive. This was at a Brian o'keefe presentation so one can always learn something watching him as well. Can't wait to see more pictures and flies from you come Spring when we head out fishing!

Here is a Link to his website with some great shots!

Brian also has DVD's out on the market for tying many popular flies so feel free to check those out as well, I know I have!!

I had the pleasure of meeting and fishing with Brian at Antero reservoir several years ago, here in South Park Colorado. His chirono pattern has got to be the best bug ever tied for the South Park Lakes. I'm fishing them every day here on Spinney Moutain Reservoir and catching 16-22" trout on a very regular basis when other anglers are just doing OK. Theswe flies work.
Thank you Brian
