Get ready for Red Stick Day on March 9th

March is almost here, and that means Red Stick Day is now just days away! Our annual fly fishing festival takes place Saturday, March 9th. It's a celebration of our sport featuring great programs, fly tying demonstrations, casting instruction, loads of raffle items, kayak demos and more.  And best of all, admission is free!

The event will again be held at the LDWF Waddill Outdoors Education Center off North Flannery Road.  The ponds on the premises are full of big bass and bluegill, so bring your fly tackle.  In addition, our friends at Masseys Outfitters will be on hand with a variety of kayaks  for folks to test paddle/pedal.  

Once again, we have great programs lined up on fly fishing for smallmouth bass, on obscure species across the South, on the finer points of fly casting and more.  

Roughly a dozen of the region's top fly tiers will also be on hand to demonstrate their various flies, along with their favorite legacy patterns. Attendees can watch and learn the step-by-step process to making a great fish-catching lure from scratch.

We'll also have casting instruction from some of the top fly casting instructors in the country! There will also be casting games for those looking to test their skills.

Complete details of the event - including schedule of activities, speaker and tier bios, and more - can be found by clicking on the "Red Stick Day" page on the menu above.
