The 2013 Northwest Fly Tyer and Fly Fishing Expo

Do your best to make this show--you be happy you did.

The 2013 Northwest Fly Tyer and Fly Fishing Expo is scheduled for March 8th and 9th at the Linn County Expo Center in Albany, Oregon. A vision conceived by the Oregon Council of Federation of Fly Fishers (OCFFF) 25 years ago has now become one of the largest fly fishing expositions on the west coast.

For over 25 years the NW Expo has been a fly tyer event. Eight years ago a new vision was conceived to have an Expo for the total fly fisher. Since then the NW Fly Fishing Expo has evolved into a two day event with a full educational curriculum of over 90 classes and draws over 2,500 attendees. The education class curriculum offering is the largest fly fishing education offering on the west coast. Vendors are starting to call it their show of choice. And with all its success the NW Expo is still an event planned and delivered by volunteers from the fly fishing clubs in Oregon.

Surrounding the 200 plus tyers are over 60 vendors in booths. These vendors of the fly fishing industry represent fly fishing products from fly tying materials to boats. Each vendor features items for the fly angler from beginner to expert. An area of special interest is the Entrepreneur booths were small startup fly fishing oriented companies are able to introduce their innovative new products or businesses.

In addition to the fly tying venue, casting is a welcomed feature event at the Expo. The Expo features a 70 foot casting pond on the main floor where certified casting instructors give demonstrations each hour. Spey casters have an outdoor Spey casting pond to practice and receive instruction. In addition to the casting pond there is an acre of space indoors for individual and group casting instruction.

The Expo also features an hourly raffle where attendees are able to win prizes donated by attending vendors and companies throughout the fly fishing industry.

The Expo finishes with a banquet on Saturday evening with the highlight for the dinner, an oral auction. Auctions of the past have featured guided trips, lodge trips, rods, reels, artwork, sculptures, and just about anything associated to fly fishing. Attendees are encouraged to buy tickets in advance as the dinner consistently sells out before the Expo has ended. All proceeds are dedicated to education and conservation efforts in Oregon. Learn more about the Expo and sign up for classes or purchase banquet tickets

Exclamation Bob is more than 'Just Right.'

This IS an extraordinary event. Plan on both days; there is no way you'll cover what's going on in even one long ...

Dave Roberts? Ever see someone hold a size 20 hook in his finger tips and do? Crap, I can't even thread a leader into something much smaller than a 12.
