The Fly Tying Group will have a lot to share in on all aspects of fly tying this year at the Fair. Everyone is welcome to participate!
The Fly Tying Rendezvous BBQ and raffle of fly tying materials is Tuesday, August 1 from noon to 4:00 p.m. Workshops begin Tuesday as well with the two-day Women's Fly Tying Workshop. Other workshops throughout the week include tying wings on salmon flies, controlling thread, working with deer hair, tying feather wings on streamers and more.
You’ll be able to watch some of the best tiers in the world demonstrate their specialties:
Friday, August 4, from noon to 6:00 p.m.
Saturday, August 5, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Be sure to drop by the FTG booth to visit about what we are doing to preserve the art form of fly tying for all fly fishers.
Back by popular demand is the Iron Fly Contest. All FFI members attending the Fair are encouraged and invited to take part in this very fun event. We will all be judged by how much fun we have…
Tying a fly in 7 minutes sounds simple right? (Yah right) Can you design and tie it not knowing what the materials or hook will be? Think you have the nerves to compete with a crowd watching and cheering? If so, we want you!
