Dear Fellow Fly Fishing and Outdoor Enthusiast, The Stonefly Society and Cache Valley Anglers, chapters of Utah Trout Unlimited, are pleased to announce the First Annual Wasatch Fly Tying & Fly Fishing Expo. The Expo will be held Saturday, May 19th, 2007 at the Karen Gail Miller Convention Center, Salt Lake Community College, 9750 South 300 West, Sandy, Utah. General Admission to the public will be free. The goals we have are threefold: 1) raise funds for future conservation projects for Utah's streams, rivers, and lakes, 2) celebrate fly tying and fly fishing in the state of Utah, and 3) have some fun. This all-day Expo will feature fly tying demos from some of the best fly tiers in Utah, casting clinics, fly tying and fly fishing workshops, activities for kids, and raffles throughout the day. In the evening, we will conclude the Expo with a banquet and auction featuring author and fly fishing guide Landon Mayer (www.landonmayer.com) as our keynote speaker. Expo activities will go from 8 a.m.-5 p.m., with the banquet starting at 7 p.m. The workshops, classes, and casting clinic schedules will be posted on the Stonefly Society website soon.
