Dear FFI Member,

YOU ARE INVITED to an opportunity of a lifetime – tying at the Fly Fishers International Fly Tying Group event in Branson, Missouri. Branson may never be the same after the FTG makes it first tying event visit, so you definitely want to be a part of this historical event September 14-16, 2023. This will also be the perfect time to get together with your buddies you may not have seen since COVID. So, bring your family and stay a few days to tie, see some family friendly shows and fish in and around beautiful Lake Taneycomo.

WHO CAN TIE: You can tie as long as you are a member of the Fly Tying Group! Said another way, you don’t have to be a Dave Whitlock to tie. This event is for individuals that like to tie to get together and have FUN. It is a Judgment Free Zone.
