Orvis Fly Fishing and Wingshooting School

by Education Chair Ron Robinson –

This free school is being given by our local Orvis store.  It’s a very good intro class that would be of interest to our PHWFF vets and new AFC club members.  There are a number of sessions available right now (6 more until the end of June) .  A notice to our members would help our members and the local Orvis store.


August 2-6 Livingston, MT

IFFF-Logo-horizontal-web-sm-SMThe International Federation of Fly Fishers will hold the 2016 Fly Fishing Fair in Livingston, Montana from August 2 though 6. Classes, both paid and free, will be held on those days, and the Exhibit Hall will be open August 4 through 6. Classes include all types and levels of casting and fly tying, and some not so related to fly fishing. The Exhibit Hall features fly tiers and vendors, all very willing to share their time and knowledge. Check the website atwww.fedflyfishers.org for more details.
A note from last year’s trip: Lodging in Livingston sold out in the weeks leading up to the event. Norm Johnson and I stayed in Bozeman, about 30 minutes away.
