Meet with us at 9 AM on August 2nd at Shamrock Park, Berrien Springs, Michigan.
Last year was well attended, so we decided to do it again, but with additional demonstrators and exhibitors.

A new demonstrator this year is Jen Ripple, Editor of Dun Magazine. Jen spends her time teaching women's fly tying and fly casting.

Phil Cook from Scientific Anglers, will be giving an on-the-water demo on how their lines apply to fishing in Michigan waters.

Wildcat Creek Outfitters will bring fishing Kayaks for you to trial on the river.

Greg Senyo will show how he ties his effective and beautiful steelhead flies. He will be tying throughout the day.

Your favorites, Peter Humphreys and Jeff Liskay, will demo Single to Switch to Spey casting. Plus if you have a mismatched line to rod outfit that you're not getting along with, you can approach them to sort it out and give you some casting help as well.
Peter and Jeff are also offering a private lesson on Friday the 1st. See the website for more details

Gary Kalinka aka Voodoofly, will represent Nextcast lines and will help budding long line casters.

Jay Anglin and Kory Boozer will give a demo on fly fishing for Smallmouth from a drift boat.

Both Great Lakes Spey Shop and Heritage Angling Products will be returning, plus Schultz Outfitters from Ypsilanti, Michigan.

St Joe Valley Fly Fishers will be on hand to discuss the St Joe River, its eco system and fishing opportunities.

The catering again will be done by Duneland Fly Fishers
The only cost is $5.00 admission to the park. Please, please, please park where the bloke taking your money asks you to to park.
Don't just throw your car down and walk away from it.

This year we are setting aside some parking spaces for those people who are not quite as mobile as they once were. These spaces will be clearly marked and will be next to the 3 cabins.
For more info please check out the website or visit our Facebook page.

Hope to see you at the event.


Doug Taylor asked me to post. I'll remind closer to the event, this is quite a lot of talent & chance to learn. Doug is a mainstay at the Cast & Compare & the Early Show. Maybe we can get a carpool going if the interest is there.
