Fly Fishing Expo at Bennett Spring


Recommended Posts

Greetings Everyone~

This is very late notice I realize, but sometimes better late than never.

Since there has apparently been very little or no advertising/promo for this upcoming event, I offered to provide some basic info in the form of this post.

The 2nd Annual Fly Fishing Expo, as I understand, is a collective effort by many of the Bennett Spring area merchants to promote the arts and skills of fly fishing, not just for trout but other species also.

The event is being hosted again by Reading's Fly Shop on Hwy. 64 just east of the park. Many industry reps will be on hand including Sage, Winston, Rio, St. Croix, Albright, Loomis, Orvis and Simms.

There will be lots of fly tying demos, casting demos and seminars on "Warm Water Fly Fishing", "Fly Fishing Gear", "Striped, Hybrid and White Bass", and others.

Live Bluegrass music from 5-7pm by Randy Rowe's Oak Hill Corral.

Concessions on-site by Ollie's BBQ.

And, Door Prize drawings thoughtout the weekend!!!

If you don't have unchangeable plans for Saturday and/or Sunday, I'm sure this will be a great opportunity to expand your base of fly fishing knowledge.

For further details, please don't reply to this post, but do call Reading's Fly Shop at (417) 588-4334.

Went last year and had a great time! Lots of drawings and with the casting pond you really do have a good set up to try the different rods that will be on hand. Charlie has really done a good job on getting some very knowlegable people involved in the fly tying etc.
