Fly Tying Expo


13th Annual Fly Tying Expo

The Great Lakes Council of the Federation of Fly Fishers will host the 13th Annual Fly Tying  Exposition at Holt High School in Holt, Michigan on Saturday, December 1, 2012. The expo will be open to the public from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
     Over 80 tiers will be on hand this year to demonstrate their fly tying skills.  The Federation of Fly Fishers Buz Buszek Award is the Federations most prestigious fly tying award and we are pleased that Buszek Award recipient Jeff Bear Andrews will be with us..  Returning talents also include Dennis Potter, Ray Schmidt,  Julie Nielsen, Chris Soule, Tim Scott, Jim Reed, Gerry Worden and many others.
Fly tiers will be tying a vast selection of patterns including trout flies, bass bugs, saltwater flies, streamers, emergers, dries, wets, and others. Once again, tiers will have the opportunity to sell their flies and fly tying associated goods from their table.  The area for vendors will be greatly expanded with vendors offering a wide variety of fly tying, fly fishing and related products.
     A number of events will be featured throughout the day including silent auctions, bucket raffles, and a live auction during the lunch hour. There will also be an instruction table for individuals to tie their first fly.
There is a modest admission fee for the event: $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for children 13-18; children 12 and under are free. Contact Karen Harrison to nominate a tier for the event at wwgcp@frontier.com.  Visit the GLC website for the latest information at www.fffglc.org.
