With opening day of the 2017 fishing season just a few weeks away the Sixth Annual Western Maine Fly Fishing Expo is bringing everything you need to prepare for that day together under one roof. This year's Expo includes nearly 40 exhibitors, a kids fly tying bench, a large selection of fishing related silent auction items to bid on, raffles, well known guest speakers, and a showing of the latest F3T feature film.
This year our guest speakers are well known author of fishing related novels, stories and essays Robert Romano, who will share his extensive knowledge of fishing in the Rangeley region, award winning fly tier Selene Dumaine who will demonstrate tying flies using Carrie Stevens' viseless in hand method, Bill Pierce, Executive Director of the Rangeley Outdoor Sporting Heritage Museum, who will present the history of fly fishing in the Rangeley region, and Robin Reeve, Managing Partner of Labrador's Three Rivers Lodge, who will talk about fly fishing for Labrador's legendary brook trout.
The Western Maine Fly Fishing Expo has helped the Mollyockett Chapter of Trout Unlimited to raise nearly $30,000. As a result of this success we have completed the following projects.
