A reminder the 2012 NW Fly tying & Fly Fishing Expo (nwexpo.com) is happening this week! This event for a fee of $5 bucks (free for veterans and anyone under 18) is a steal for learning just about anything regarding fly fishing. The event is sponsored by the Oregon Council of the Federation of Fly Fishers and is a venue for fly fishing and tying, casting and a number of seminars and classes. Among dozens of classes in four classrooms, four arenas and an outdoor pond are knot-tying, entomology of both dry and wet fly patterns, distance and precision casting, beginner’s techniques (casting, fishing and fly tying), seasons on each of several rivers (Crooked, Deschutes, etc.), fish-specific fly fishing (trout, smallmouth bass, etc.) and even some how-to for artistic fly displays.
There is much to do and see at the Expo – You can take classes, talk to vendors, watch casting demonstrations, and a favorite of many is to walk around and view the tyers displaying their tying skills.
See you at the Expo!
