The Great Lakes Council of the Federation of Fly Fishers are hosting their 13th Annual Fly Tying Exposition at Holt High School in Holt, Michigan on Saturday, December 1, 2012. I would love to make it up there for this, but I’m not sure if it is something I can realistically do. But there are going to be some great tyers there for sure!
The expo will be open to the public from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Over 80 tiers will be on hand this year to demonstrate their fly tying skills. Returning talents include Jeff “Bear” Andrews , Dennis Potter, Ray Schmidt, Julie Nielsen, Chris Soule, Tim Scott, Jim Reed, Gerry Worden and many others. There is a modest admission fee for the event: $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for children 13-18; children 12 and under are free. Contact Karen Harrison to nominate a tier for the event at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you can go, I highly recommend it. This should be a lot of fun and a good learning experience. If you want more information, check out the GLC’s website.
