Learn from 200 fly tyers
There will be 72 tyers tying at anytime across three time slots each day. Attendees will be able to watch tyers tie a variety of styles including trout, steelhead, realistic, and Atlantic salmon flies. Some of the best fly tyers in the world attend the show and volunteer to demonstrate their skills. For a schedule of tyers visit – http://nwexpo.com/tyers.php.

There are range of exhibitors each year the Expo. These include book publishers, fly tying shops, rod and reel manufactures, and artists.

Fly tying, fly fishing, and casting classes
If you want a more hands-on approach to learning check out the classes being offered. The fly tying classes let you follow along with the instructor as you tie a fly(s). You can explore different styles and materials. The fly fishing classes will introduce you to new techniques and locations. The casting classes are a great opportunity to get 1 on 1 instruction.
You can click on the class and reserve your spot. Sign-up quickly because classes have limited admission.

This is going to be a very fine gathering in 2020, and everyone involved in organizing these event has made a commitment of their time and energy to support our craft, hoping to pass the collective knowledge and skills of thousands of years experience on to those who follow. YouTube is a wonderful new toy and a legitimate means of learning. But there is something magic that happens at theEXPO and similar events were people gather and exchange ideas face to face.
Thank you for considering attending tis event in 2020 – we hope to see you at the EXPO.
