Fly Anglers of all abilities should head to the free Jimmy Green Memorial Fly Fishing Fair and Casting Expo 9 a.m.-4 p.m. June 20 at Lake Tye, 14964 Fryelands Blvd. in Monroe.

Meet and talk to the owners of local Puget Sound fly shops; learn to cast a fly rod; get involved in protecting local waters and fish; meet fly-fishing guides; find a fly-fishing club near your home; attend seminars in Fly-fishing 101; Lake Fly Fishing, River Fly Fishing; Puget Sound Fly Fishing; and there will be a casting competition for single and two-handed rods.

There will be free food and drinks, including coffee and doughnuts as well as hot dogs, hamburgers and refreshments for lunch.

Folks can also try their luck in two raffles, one for fly-fishermen who bring potential fly fishermen to the event, the more you bring, the more tickets you get, and another for new potential fly fishermen only.

For details visit the Fly-fishing Expo Web site.
