There will be door prizes, and we will have our giant bucket raffle with new and lightly used fishing items. You can also purchase raffle tickets for our “Fantasy Raffle”, a package valued over $4,000, featuring a custom-made bamboo rod and a vast array of fly fishing accoutrements including books and materials.

Here is a preview of the many tiers who will be there: Fly Tyers 2018 Clinic

In addition to our noted tiers, we’ll have Alan Kube, recently named “Bamboo Rod Maker of the Year”, to talk about the merits of bamboo. And, Jonathan Walter, an IFFF certified master casting instructor, will be available to help you hone your casting strokes.

Finally, come hungry! Delicious lunch selections will be available for purchase.

All funds raised by this event go to the Chapter’s Clear Creek restoration efforts, its education activities, and to its myriad community outreach programs.
