On June 20 at Lake Tye in Monroe, will be the 1st annual "Jimmy Green Memorial Fly Fishing Fair and Casting Expo."
Every fly shop in the area - All About the Fly
; Avid Angler; Creekside Angling Company; Gig Harbor Fly Fishing; Kaufmann's Streamborn; Orvis; Pacific Fly Fishers; Patrick's; Puget Sound Fly Fishing Company; River Run
Anglers; Ted's Sports Center as well as every rod manufacturer, and guide service will be there. All Fly Fishing Clubs and non-profits will be invited.
The Fair's sole purpose is to introduce our great sport and passion to more people. As such, there will be no selling, no close outs and no great deals. Instead, people will have the opportunity to meet, greet and learn from the people who own their local fly shops and cast rods made by all of our country's rod makers.
The hours will be from 9AM to 4PM. We will have free coffee and donuts as well as free hot dogs, hamburgers and refreshments for lunch.
Every hour, we will have a class entitled, "Fly Fishing 101." There will be free casting lessons; single-handed casting demos; two-handed casting demos; a 5wt casting competition; a two-handed casting competition
; and fly fishing seminars throughouut the day.
What's in it for you, the seasoned fly fishing veteran, you may ask? We will have a raffle that only you may enter. You will get a ticket for every eligible beginner you bring to the Fair.
With your support, this grassroots show could be the beginning of an outdoor fly fishing show in the PNW!
More details will be posted as they become available.
