Many well skilled fly tiers will be in attendance. In addition to the fly tiers equipment, and fly tying materials are also for sale. A member picked up 12 peacock swords for $5.00 one year. Some suppliers may have good deals on supplies for fly tying. This is a great time to stock up on tying supplies or get anything you need. . Hackle is prevalent there with one of the premier hackle suppliers usually present.
In addition to the supplies, there is also classes and seminars every day the show is open. These are from some of the most premier fly tiers and or fly fishers in the country. Anyone who attends will be amazed at the amount of fly tying experience at this event.

Join us Wednesday June 24 at 7:30 pm for our annual pizza party. At this meeting, we will be have beverages and pizza with various toppings. We will be discussing how our fishing is going so far and upcoming events. This usually is one of our more interesting meetings as we do not have a specific presenter and talk about fishing in general.
Our main attraction for the June meeting is the award of a fly rod in our members raffle. This year the prize is a Cabela’s Three Forks fly rod, 7’-6” in length, 3 weight of three-piece construction. This is a great rod for fishing small mountain streams and brooks. This raffle, for members only, is based on attendance during the past year. Therefore, the more meetings you attend the more entries you have, thus increasing your odds of winning.
