The NW Fly Tyer & Fly Fishing Expo was held this past weekend. Shop employee Lou V. was on there and captured some pictures for all to see. Early estimates indicated another crowd of over 1,400 attended the 2009 Expo. One surprise attendee was Governor Ted Kulongoski, shown below with Tilda Runner, ORCFFF President & Co-Chair of Expo 2009 and Jim Fisher, ORCFFF Treasurer & Co-Chair of Expo 2009. The governor had a great time and was “just another fly angler” amongst the crowd.
Below are some pictures of the crowds, booths, and some amazing fly tyer’s. If you were able to attend, it was very difficult not leave the Expo fully charged for fly fishing and fly tying! If you could not attend this year’s Expo, next year’s 2010 Expo is planned for March 12 & 13, same place, same times….see you there! -LV
