The featured speakers and seminar schedule have just been announced for the 2015 Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo. The headliners for this year's show include fly fishing legends Lefty Kreh and Dave and Emily Whitlock. There will be plenty of fly porn to see: Brian Bergeson of Musky Bacon fame and Patterson Leeth of MPLS Fly will be tying up some big meat, Whitlock will be tying up his trout classics, and I'll be conjuring up some roughfish magic at the vise. Come check us all out over in the Fly Tying Area, once again hosted by the St. Paul Fly Tiers.
For those folks interested in all things carp and roughfish, Dan Frasier, Fly Fishing Editor of CarpPro magazine, will be there presenting on carp and sitting in on the writer's panel. I will be giving several fly tying demonstrations in the Fly Tying Theater on Saturday, March 21, at noon, and Sunday, March 22, at noon, and will be presenting on carp and roughfish in the Gold Room at 4 pm on Saturday, March 21. By popular demand, I will be featuring a tutorial and demonstration on DIY dubbing for Saturday's noon fly tying seminar. I will also be demonstrating some of Loon Outdoors killer products like their UV resins so don't miss out!. Check out the entire speaking schedule for the expo.
As per the usual, there will be plenty of new gear to check out at the vendor booths this year. You might catch me helping out at the iFFF Upper Midwest Council's booth or bothering my co-workers over at the MN DNR booth. There are always so many things going on during the expo weekend that it shouldn't be missed.
I will have flies available for sale, cash or credit accepted. Once again my sponsors, like Mountain Khakis, have hooked me up with some swag to give away so please come find me in the Fly Tying area!
