JP Ross Fly Tying Symposium

Had a great time this past weekend traveling to Utica for the 2010 Fly Tying Symposium, created by JP Ross Fly Rods & Co. Had a chance to grab a ride with my good friend Brian Bradfield and his son... my other fishing buddy Jessie Hollenbeck joined us for the long ride, which was a nice bonus to the road trip. All three of us rarely get to hang out together, so we had a lot of 'fishing' talk to catch up on.

This years event was a full day of fly fishing fun, with tying demonstrations by over 30 professional tiers (Brian and I were fortunate to be on the list of tiers), and fly fishing seminars running all day long. Great vendors, raffles, and even fly tying for the kids, made the day interesting and applicable for every age and level of fishing/tying experience.

If you didn't go this year make sure you stop over to JP's website and tell him you are interested in attending next year!
