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.
