Dave McKee: Long Horned Beetle

 

Dave McKee has helped us with several other fly tying videos. See them here.

Fly Tyer Dave McKee is a native of Pennsylvania. Dave has been involved in guiding fly fishing since graduating from Colby College in 1993. After a childhood of fishing the waters up and down the east coast, moving west seemed a logical step and after 3 years of guiding in the Wind River Range and Jackson Hole area in Wyoming, he moved to Bozeman where he now lives with his wife Cory and sons Jack and Charlie. Dave operates his own outfitting business (Dave McKee Fly Fishing LLC) and spends more than 200 days on the water each season. During the off season, he ties flies for Blue Ribbon Flies in West Yellowstone as well as for the fly selections that are available through his website www.davemckeeflyfishing.com. His unique cork strike indicators are available at many flyshops around the country or on his website. Dave is a signature tier for Umpqua Feather Merchants, on the board of Directors for the Fishing Outfitters Association of Montana ( FOAM), a member of the Scientific Anglers Pro Staff, is a director of the Montana Fly Fishing Guide School, and served as the outdoor columnist for the Bozeman Daily Chronicle for 10 years.
