Fly Tyer’s Weekend will return to the Tremont Lodge and Resort in Townsend, Tennessee on November 5th & 6th. The event is sponsored by Tremont Lodge & Resort, Little River Outfitters and the Southeastern Council of the International Federation of Fly Fishers. This fun-filled weekend of tying demonstrations and classes is the Southeast’s premier fly tying event and is expected to attract some of the best tyers from throughout the Southeast.

On Saturday, November 5th, the Southeastern Council will host a BBQ and a showing of the International Fly Fishing Film Festival (IF4) . Movie tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door. Doors open at 6:00PM and the show starts at  6:30PM. BBQ and beer will be available for purchase.

Don’t miss the bonfire! Proceeds of the raffle and auction will support the Fly Fishing Museum of the Southern Appalachians. The Museum, located in Cherokee, North Carolina, is the home of the rich heritage of fly fishing from Maryland to Georgia and provides a base for education related to fly fishing with workshops, exhibits and presentations.

Event hours will be 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days. Admission is free. IF4 tickets are available for sale at Little River Outfitters, online at the Southeastern Council’s website and through the IF4 website . Online class registration is on the Council website as well.

Tremont Lodge and Resort is offering event attendees a 15% discount on rooms for the weekend. Call (865) 448-3200 to book your reservation. Discounted rooms are limited.

In addition to fly fishing, Townsend is a gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and offers non-fishing activities for the entire family.

 

Fly Tyers Schedule at Fly Tyers Weekend 2016 TBA

The Fly Tyers and anglers below have donated their time and money to be here for your enjoyment. They will be tying all weekend in shifts and you can spend two days with them for FREE. That’s the way Fly Tyers Weekend works.

Additionally, The Southeastern Council of the International Federation of Fly Fishing will be holding a fundraiser dinner and film showing Saturday night.

Also, some very talented people will be holding fly tying classes, for you to learn new skills and techniques. There will be a fee for these classes paid to and retained by the Southeastern Council of the International Federation of Fly Fishers. All profits made from the auction/raffle will benefit the Fly Fishing Museum of the Southern Appalachians. Click the button below to learn more.
