The Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo 2017 is being held this coming Friday through Sunday at Hamline University in Saint Paul. This would be a great chance for many DTA'ers to set foot on an actual college campus.

I will be demonstrating my fly tying skills from 9am to 1pm on Saturday. The event is as star studded as it has ever been. I look forward to seeing some of my fellow DTA'ers there. ThumpUp

Never been to the cities. Hate the thought of driving in metro.

Guess I stay local and fish.

Some excellent presenters in there: Geri, Mat, Tim and more.

Eddie, good luck with your tying demonstration.

Those are some good presenters. You DTA fisherman attending should soak in every word of advice Mat and Geri say. Next to Trapper, there are probably not many who have spent as much time on Trout streams in the Driftless. I wish there was a similar show in the Milwaukee area, but probably not enough fly fisherman in the area to make it feasible.

Unfortunately there is a similar problem in the Fox Valley. Went to the fishing show the first weekend in March and it was all big water stuff (Muskie, Walleye, Bass, etc). Not that I mind that kind of fishing, but when I do get the rare opportunity I would rather spend it in solitude on a stream somewhere lately.

I just noticed Jeff Currier is on the presenters list for the Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo. If you get the chance, look him up. He's fished on six continents for nearly everything that swims, is an accomplished artist, and is a very entertaining speaker.

I've always loved this picture of Jeff during his fish bum days (yes, he really lived in that car). His dedication to the sport is unparalleled.

94 west to Snelling ain't exactly tough Metro driving to get to the Expo.

Just sayin'.

It's a country thing. My brother has lived his whole life (75 years) in a small cow town. He really hates driving in the "big" cities (Madison, LaCrosse, etc...). He nearly freaked out when my nephew drove him around San Francisco one summer.
