Albany, Oregon

Join the fun in Albany, Oregon!

The 2015 NW Fly Tyer & Fly Fishing Expo is set for March 13 & 14 at the Linn County Fairground and Expo Center in Albany Oregon.

The NW Fly Tyer & Fly Fishing Expo brings together the social network of fly fisherman throughout the Northwest, Northern California, and Idaho.  Over 2,000 people attended last year’s Expo.  The NW Expo has been heralded as the “largest fly tying event west of the Mississippi”.

Class choices include: fly tying techniques, fly casting (single and two handed), and fly fishing techniques.  The NW Expo is sponsored by the non-profit organization, Oregon Council of the International Federation of Fly Fishers (IFFF).  All proceeds are dedicated to education and conservation efforts within the state.

There will be over 50  classes on tying & casting, free demonstrations of same and 200 tyers demonstrating in shifts all day, both days, plus 50 different vendors of products of interest to fly fishers, “where & how to” programs, raffles, and silent and live auctions of quality merchandise.

On Saturday evening, after the close of the show, there will be an opportunity to meet and mingle with fly tyers and instructors with a no-host bar, followed by the annual banquet and live auction to conclude the festivities.  It is not necessary to buy a dinner ticket to attend the auction.
