The Caddis Fly Angling Shop is proud to announce our 2015 Fly Tying Contest to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Come enter your flies in one, or all of the classes, stop by to see the flies being entered, and help benefit a great cause!
The Caddis Fly Tying Contest to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society begins today; entries will be accepted until April 15th, 2015. We will announce the winners at the Caddis Fly Angling Shop on April 17th from 7-9pm. We have a lot of choices for you fly tyers out there, including a Trout division and Open Division featuring a Steelhead, Spun Hair, and Foam Fly. Check out the patterns on our Entry Form to choose your entry flies. Get those creative juices flowing, choose your areas of interest, and get tying!
Prizes will be awarded to those placing in each division. At the end of the night we will have a drawing for some really cool prizes! We are still receiving donations, so the prizes will be revealed at a later time, but here are a few items up to win or draw: Patagonia Jacket, Echo Glass Rod, and a Sage Fly Reel.
There is no entry fee, and all tyers are welcome! Please mail or drop off your entries to:

In 2010 I was diagnosed with Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia, and the Lymphoma and Leukemia Society was there to support our family during some difficult times. Currently, my leukemia is in remission to due recent advances in the treatment of APL. As a Registered Nurse, and Leukemia patient, I felt a strong desire to give back to the organization committed to finding a cure for Lymphoma and Leukemia.
