A handful of photos from Fly Fest 2017!

I guess we can call this one a “Throwback thursday” since it was lost and never posted!

Fly Fest was held at the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum on February 4th, 2017. This is an casual get together sponsored by Catskill Flies, where fly tyers from everywhere tie flies, share tips, patterns and stories. Its a fun day that helps to break up the cabin fever of the cold winter months.

Thanks to Guild member Rick Fischer for the photos!
