First Annual Oregon Fly Fishing Festival A Huge Success
Judge Mike Perusse watches closely as a contestant cast for a chance at a G. Loomis rod.

Saturday was beautiful weather for being outside...no rain, no wind...a perfect 65-degrees...the smells of spring all around.  Several hundred fly anglers visited the Festival. High points were the huge selection of tackle to feel & try, casting events & non-stop prizes. Good times were had by all.

Patty and her customers.

Our store was jammed with people. The local restaurants reported a huge surge in business.  All parking areas were used up, traffic jams were created and shuttles were performed...much to amusement of all involved.  This was the First Annual Oregon Fly Fishing Festival.  This year's even will involve more of our community.  June 16, 2007.

Proposed 2007 Agenda
This event is geared to both seasoned fly anglers and those who would like to entertain the possibility of becoming involved in this pastime of "fly fishing". This is an all day HANDS ON event for anglers of all skill levels in a no pressure atmosphere. You are invited to observe and/or participate. We will feature casting clinics for both one and two handed fly rods, fly tying, basic knot skills, entomology (insects), reading the water, drift boating and so on. If it is about fly fishing, we will cover it. Slide shows, verbal presentations and live demonstrations will be featured all day. We will also feature two levels of casting competitions. Our new computerized Sage Casting Analyzer will be available for use all day. We have 9 manufacturers reps showing products from most of the leading fly fishing oriented companies: Sage, Winston, G. Loomis, Thomas and Thomas, Temple Fork Outfitters, Echo, C.F. Burkheimer, Simms, Fish Pond, Clear Creek, William and Joseph, Abel, Bauer, Tibor, Ross Reels, Patagonia, Cortland, Dan Bailey’s, Jim Teeny’s, Hardy, Clackacraft Drift Boats, Outcast Pontoon Boats, K-Pump and MANY others will be represented.
