Save the Date: The International Fly Tying Symposium November 19th & 20th

The International Fly Tying Symposium is coming to Doubletree Hotel in Somerset, NJ on November 19th and 20th, 2011.

The event is now in it's 21st year and features some of the best fly tiers on the planet.  It's always a great time, where you get to talk and ask the tiers about their pattern.  I've been going since the beginning and  haven't missed one.  There are free programs, celebrity tiers, classes, lots of stories, flies that catch fishers and tall tails.

Here are some of the programs I'm looking forward to:
  • JOHAN KLINGBERG “European Nymphing- History & Techniques”
  • ERIC STROUP “Catching Trout in Tough Conditions”
  • BOB JACKLIN “Yellowstone and Montana Sampler”
  • and ARON JASPER “The Newest in Nymphs and How to Construct Them”
Here are some photos of the flies from the videos I shot last year.
