Bring one or more of your new or favorite rods to compare to others. This is a great chance to try other rods on the water to see what you like. If you are new to fly fishing come out & learn!

Test new gear from  Orvis Yorktown & Dupage  Fly Fishing are coming.

Join us & bring a mask. We will practice social distancing as required. 

Casting space on shore  but bring your waders we're right on the Fox river.

Good turnout - 21 signed in plus a few more. Rain wasn't too bad & it stopped by 10:30. Both shops brought some great new gear and Doug Taylor helped with spey casting lessons. It was good to see some familiar faces but there were 7 who were first time at the event.  Thank you to all who came and to Jeremy & Zach from Dupage Fly & Ike from Orvis.
