16th Annual Fly Tying Expo

16th Annual Fly Tying Expo

The Great Lakes Council of the International Federation of Fly Fishers will host the 16th Annual Fly Tying  Exposition at The Causeway Bay Hotel in Lansing, Michigan on Saturday November 7, 2015. The expo will be open to the public from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Over 50 tiers will be on hand this year to demonstrate their fly tying skills.  Fly tiers will be tying a vast selection of patterns including trout flies, bass bugs, saltwater flies, streamers, emergers, dries, wets, and others. Once again, tiers will have the opportunity to sell their flies and fly tying associated goods from their table.  The area for vendors will be greatly expanded with vendors offering a wide variety of fly tying, fly fishing and related products.

A number of events will be featured throughout the day including silent auctions, bucket raffles, and a live auction during the lunch hour.  Again this year we will have a variety of special seminars during the day as well. There will also be an instruction table for individuals to tie their first fly.

There is a modest admission fee for the event: $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for children 13-18; children 12 and under are free. Contact Terry Walker to nominate a tier for the event at ixlox7@hotmail.com .
