In addition visitors will learn about fly fishing from exhibitors, vendors, fly tiers and other artisans. Attendees will also have an opportunity to have their fly fishing memorabilia appraised by some of the antique tackle dealers who will be vendors at the celebration. In addition to the fly casting demonstrations along with personal one on one instruction, there are silent auctions and bucket raffles. A bamboo rod building demonstration and workshop is also scheduled. This year members of the National Fishing Lure Collector's Club (NFLCC) are invited to set up as vendors. There will be “in-room” trading in the Comfort Inn on Thursday and Friday nights. This is an NFLCC tradition which is an exciting event in itself. All are welcomed to attend.
