“The Fly Tyers Weekend 2018 (FTW) dates have been locked in,” says Anthony Hipps, FTW 2018 Fly Tier Coordinator. “This is your official invitation to be a demonstration tier, Saturday-Sunday, October 27th-28th, at Little River Outfitters, Townsend, TN. Once again we will be in the big tent right behind the Little River Outfitters fly shop in stunningly beautiful Townsend on the west side of the gorgeous Smoky Mountains. This is prime autumn fishing season in the park and also the local stocked streams. For those of you have been in this show before you know how much fun and fellowship we have sharing our tying and slightly embellished stories (for entertainment purposes of course). Daniel, Dave, Byron and I look forward to seeing you all again in 2018.
“We are requesting that you only sign up for one tying session per day, morning or afternoon, unless you can only be with us for one day. One day tiers will get preference for all day tying if we have tables available. If this is your first time tying at FTW, please send me a single paragraph tying/fishing bio and a recent photo. If you have tied in FTW before and want to use your bio and photo on file, that is fine,” says Hipps.
