Fly anglers from around the Pacific Northwest will converge April 29-30 to the Washington State Fly Fishing Fair at the Kittitas Valley Event Center in Ellensburg.

The event is organized by the Washington State Council of the Federation of Fly Fishers, an umbrella organization to support fly-fishing clubs of Washington with the aim of keeping club members informed on local and national issues that impact fishing.

There will be several local shops and equipment manufacturers with displays. Classes are being offered in fly casting, fly tying, and seminars showing how to prepare for a trip.

Nearly 100 fly tiers will demonstrate how to tie flies that work in the waters they fish and will discuss with you how to best use them.

Fly casting classes will be offered from beginning classes to casting in distance and windy situations. All instructors are FFF Certified instructors and there will be an ongoing clinic if you just want a quick refresher to get ready for the season. A friendly casting competition will be held for those interested.

Saturday night will bring the festivities to a close with a banquet and auction. The funds raised fund the Council’s education, operations, and conservation activities.
