Fly Tyers

The Wasatch Fly Tying & Fly Fishing Expo has always had some of the best tyers in the Intermountain area, demonstrating their skills. Come out and see techniques, patterns and materials of all types. The tyers are an incredible source of knowledge, and are very willing to share. We encourage, and welcome, tyers of all skill levels to participate and show their stuff.

If you are interested in becoming a participant, please email: David “Gibby” Gibson, Fly Tyer Chair.

This years Expo will be much larger than in years past. The newly updated expo floor plan can be found here.
