2017 Puget Sound Fly Fishing Fair
Saturday, July 29th, 2017
Free Events and Activities
In addition to the many scheduled presentations, we will have a number of drop-in events and activities for you to enjoy.
Stop by the personal watercraft display area and learn all about ways to get on the water. Talk to owners of kayaks, float tubes, pontoon boats, prams, canoes and find out ways to customize them for your own style, how to transport, loading and launching strategies, and where there are boat ramps to access.
Don’t miss the Silent Auction. There are many choices from rods and reels, to waders, lines, float plane excursions, framed prints, gift certificates, and much more.
Take home your very own fish print, or gyotaku, as a souvenir of the day. Let your inner artist out.
Kids, ever look inside the body of a salmon? Learn all about the adaptations that help them survive in the water. Join WDFW Fisheries Biologist Ken Behen as he dissects and explores the inner workings of our famous fish.
Wonder what all these fish we chase eat when we aren’t around? Join the crew from Harbor WildWatch as they introduce you to the marine invertebrates making their home in Puget Sound.
Fly tying demonstrations will be held throughout the day and there will be Certified Casting Instructors to help get the kinks out of your cast or let you try out an assortment of rods, reels and line types. A special kids target casting area will be set up for the chance to win a sweet prize.
And don’t miss the Used Gear Sale of fly fishing equipment at remarkable prices. Also, on hand will be dozens of fly fishing and tying books at super discount prices. Pick up a classic or just build your own library.
Pick up a fly fishing book for your library and meet the authors; Richard Stoll, David Paul Williams, and Skip Morris will autograph your purchase and share a few secrets with you.
Finally, Boy Scouts can check off a couple activities on the Fly Fishing Merit Badge requirements so come prepared.
