Default Guys (and Girls), Flies, and Pies - Rochester, NY

I’ve been waiting for the next annual Guys, Flies, and Pies since I first heard about it at the 2011 Rochester Sportsman’s Expo last March, where I met Michael Simmons, the event organizer. Michael was tying flies at the Seth Green Society Chapter of Trout Unlimited booth right next to our Western NY Kayak Fishing Association Booth. I had a budding interest in fly tying at the time (my son had beat me to it by a year or so…) and Michael told me he had just begun kayak fishing. He then told me about Guys, Flies, and Pies and invited me to come. My wait is nearly over because IT’S THIS WEEKEND!

Guys, Flies, and Pies is a public event in it’s fifth year running, and is an afternoon and evening of fly tying, demos, door prizes, raffles, and eating all the PIZZA you can eat (hence the “Pies” as in pizza pies…). It promises to be a lot of fun!

Damn..... wish now that I hadn't already committed to a drive over to the Springfield RV Show. Rochester is a bit further a drive (in the opposite direction), but this event looks like fun!

Can you tell us (me) more about the Western NY Kayak Fishing Association? Is there a similar group further east in NYS? Kayaking otherwise unreachable waters, and watching fish rise (and other wildlife), is one of the things that got me interested in fly-fishing.

Rick - Albany is quite a drive, but you're welcome to join us for kayak fishing over this way any time! The Western NY Kayak Fishing association is a VERY informal group of kayak fishing enthusiasts who occasionally get together for fishing trips and events. There are no dues or "official" membership requirements. If you love to kayak fish and want to help promote and share the sport, that's what we're about. There is a NY Kayak Fishing Association that's active east of you, but I don't have much information about it.

If you change plans for the weekend, let me know and come on over to join us at Guys, Flies, and Pies!

-Paul

Is it tomorrow yet? I can't wait! The weather is setting up nice, so I might even get out to do some fishing before I go.
