Albany, March 10 & 11th
Hello ORCIFFF Members,
We are less than two months from the Northwest Fly Tyer & Fly Fishing Expo. We have been busy and have a lot of updates to tell you about.
Fly Tyer Schedule
The tyer schedule has been posted on the website and can be found here - https://goo.gl/Om5Izb. There are many great tyers that will be attending this year. One tyer to highlight is Oregon’s own Jim Ferguson. Jim was awarded the Buz Buszek Memorial Fly Tying Award in August 2016. This is the highest fly tying honor awarded by IFFF. Jim is scheduled to tie on Saturday for the first two sessions. He is also teaching a tying class – Atlantic Salmon Part III – Wings, Collars, Throats, Sides, Roofs & More. Signup can be found here - https://goo.gl/AZt5lu.
One of the main attractions at the Expo are the classes that are offered. The classes are on the website and can be ordered now. Hurry as the classes have limits to the number of participants.

A reception dinner will be help on Friday night this year. This special dinner only costs $5.00 to attend and has a limited number of tickets. You can purchase your ticket here - https://goo.gl/Fe8ITV. The Friday reception dinner will replace the Saturday banquet. There will be an auction at the reception dinner. There will also be a special fly box raffle – more details later. There are also options to purchase packages that include raffle tickets and reception dinner tickets at a discount here - https://goo.gl/WY1UEz.
