On Saturday March 29th, 9am-4pm, the Cascade Family Fly Fishers and McKenzie Fly Fishers will host the Eugene, Oregon Fly Fishing Festival. It will take place at the Amazon Community Center, 2700 Hilyard Street, Eugene. Experts will demonstrate fly casting, fly tying, insect identification, knots and leaders and more.
According to the McKenzie Fly Fishers, this event is a continuation of the fly fishing fair from the 1980’s and 90’s. That event was eclipsed by the Oregon Council FFF’s Fly Tying Expo held annually in Eugene. The Expo grew as large as the Lane County Fair Ground would allow. Last year, the Expo was moved to Albany and a larger venue. Check out our coverage of day one and two of the Northwest Fly Tyer expo from 2008.
