If you have any questions let me know.

Dear Fellow Fly Fishing & Outdoor Enthusiast,
The Stonefly Society and Cache Valley Anglers, chapters of Utah Trout Unlimited, are pleased to announce the Third Annual Wasatch Fly Tying & Fly Fishing Expo. The Expo will be held Friday and Saturday, March 20-21, 2009 at the Karen Gail Miller Conference Center, Salt Lake Community College, 9750 South 300 West, Sandy, Utah.
This two-day Expo will feature fly tying demos from some of the best fly tiers in Utah, casting clinics, fly tying and fly fishing workshops, casting competition, fly fishing film festival, prize raffles, exhibitors, and more. Last year’s event was a great success and we anticipate this year’s Expo to be bigger and better. Saturday evening we will conclude the Expo with a banquet and auction featuring renown author and fly shop owner Charlie Craven (Charlie's FlyBox - Metro Denver, Colorado's Best Fly Fishing Retailer (flyshop) with online Fly Tying Tutorials
) as our keynote speaker. Expo activities on Friday will go from 4 p.m. - 9 p.m. and on Saturday from 8 a.m.- 4 p.m. The banquet Saturday evening will start at 6:30 p.m. and will include a live and silent auction.
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.
In addition to the Expo event, we are pleased to announce we are bringing back the Wasatch Fly Fishing Film Festival which will be held on Wednesday, March 18th at 7 p.m. The film festival will feature 5-7 mini fly fishing film segments. It will be held at the Miller Free Enterprise Center in the Auditorium, Salt Lake Community College, 9750 South 300 West, Sandy, Utah. Tickets will be $8 per person. We will be giving away some great door prizes and holding a few raffles. It should be a great event.
The workshops, classes, and casting clinic schedules can be downloaded from the expo website. Check it often for updates and announcements. Wasatch Fly Tying & Fly Fishing Expo, Utah Trout Unlimited, Stonefly Society, Cache Anglers
