Fly Fest 2017 Announcement

Post by quadfish »

Hi Folks, it's time to start thinking about what to do on Saturday, February 4, 2017!!

How about signing up for Fly Fest? The sign up will help give us an idea of participation level in advance , no commitment involved whatsoever. I will keep you posted here of any developments as they occur. If you are on facebook, there is an event page there also.

Location:

Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum
1031 Old Route 17, Livingston Manor, New York 12758


Time: 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM Date: 2/4/2017

Sponsored by Catskill Flies of Roscoe, NY this annual event is a good way to "break the ice" and is the first event of 2017 at the Museum. This event is a great way to tie flies with a group. Nothing formal, just a gathering of tyers from all over the area and some from not so close. If you want to tie, socialize or get an early peak at the year's new exhibits, this is a good excuse to get out of the house.

Additional information:

I neglected to mention in the original posting for this event, there will be a $5.00 entry fee at the door which will be donated to the CFFCM.

Also, we may have a raffle involving the tiers to sweeten the museum donation pot a bit too!

Fly Fest Update for 1/11/2017:

Our sponsor, Catskill Flies, has a legitimate concern about handling the possibility of nasty winter weather on the day of Fly Fest. Please stay tuned to the Catskill Flies Forum, SGM Forum, or Facebook for up to date information. If the weather turns bad, Ellen from Catskill Flies will post on their website by 5:30AM if there is a cancellation!!

Also, for all your food concerns, we will not have any catered lunches this year.... Feel free to check out any of the wonderful food establishments in the area or pack a lunch if you would like.


Thanks, it looks like a good deal of interest, keep spreading the word!!


Please sign up by adding a post here!

Thanks, Catskill Flies (Ellen and Dennis) , John (Catskill John) and Rick (quadfish)
