Thread: Wasatch Expo

  1. Default Wasatch Expo

    I wanted to give a quick heads up because t is coming up fast:

    The Stonefly Society, High Country Fly Fishers, and Cache Anglers, chapters of Utah Trout Unlimited, are pleased to announce the Fourth Annual Wasatch Fly Tying & Fly Fishing Expo. The Expo will be held Saturday, March 27th, 2010 at the Karen Gail Miller Conference Center, Salt Lake Community College, 9750 South 300 West, Sandy, Utah.

    The 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, kids tying area, prize raffles, exhibitors, and more. Last year's event was a great success and we anticipate this year's Expo to be just as good.

    The goals of the Expo 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.

    Banquet and Auction:
    Saturday evening we will conclude the Expo with a banquet and LIVE auction and featuring renown authors and fly tyers Al and Gretchen Beatty as our keynote speakers. The banquet is the highlight event of the Expo and encourage everyone to attend. We will have some great trips and auction items to bid on and will post specifics as we get closer to the Expo. The funds raised at the Expo and during the LIVE auction go towards important conservation projects and educational programs for Trout Unlimited chapters across Utah. The banquet Saturday evening will start at 6:30 p.m. Ticket reservations will be available soon and more informaton can be found on the Expo website. We look forward to seeing you there.

    Wasatch Fly Fishing Film Festival:
    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 Friday, March 26th 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. All attendees will be eligible for some great raffle prizes. It should be a great event. Tickets will be available soon on the Expo website.

    Workshops, Classes, and Clinics:
    The workshops and classes will be exceptional this year. In addition to special classes by Al and Gretchen Beatty, we have some great classes lined up by experts covering a number of fly fishing and fly tying topics. The workshops, classes, and casting clinic schedules will soon be available and can be downloaded from the Expo website. Check it often for updates and announcements.

    Discount Lodging Available:

    Stu, Cary and I will once again be managing the bucket raffles.
    And I'm build another rod this year for the show. This year it's a Sage.

    Sage TXL 2710-3. That's a 7'10" 2w 3 piece. Going to be a nice rod.
