Bring along your family and introduce them to the lifelong, fulfilling pastime of fly fishing and fly tying. Fly tying for everyone…expert, novice or the beginner.

This year’s special guest is David Nelson of White Plains, New York. David is a fly designer and owner of Squimpishflies.com.  He began fly fishing at age 26 - and now two decades later - is considered one of the top fly designers in the country. David credits total immersion into the sport, and the influence of many talented tiers with whom he developed a close bond, and from personal experience. He spends a great deal of time chasing stripers, steelhead, large rainbows and other hard-charging species using two-handed and spey rods.
