AMFF Fly Tying Tournament
The American Museum of Fly Fishing ‘Fit to be Tyed’ program continues on Saturday, February 27, from 2 to 6 p.m.Learn to tie a variety of styles from classic trout patterns to saltwater and deer hair bass poppers. From 6 p.m. until around 8 p.m. the AMFF and Pig Farm Ink will host the Iron Fly and Classic Tie Competition, with free pizza donated by Christos’ Pizza and Pasta, and a cash bar serving beer provided by Otter Creek Brewing. The Iron Fly follows the format of the Food Channel’s Iron Chef, where participants are given a mystery bag of ingredients to make some insanely creative flies. It is open to experienced tiers and novices alike. Following the Iron Fly will be the Classic Tie, when contestants will examine three flies from AMFF’s collection and try to beat the original without instructions. They will have to tie by what they see in front of them, and the results will be judged by our panel to see whose comes out the closest to the original. Winners will take home plenty of bragging rights and prizes. Visit amff.com for more information.
