Fly Tyers Weekend History

Fly Tyers Weekend was held at and by Little River Outfitters in 2004 through 2006.  A large heated tent was attached to the fly shop.  Fly tyers demonstrated in the tent, in the shop and in the shop’s two classrooms.  The event was well attended, popular and grew every year.  The cost was prohibitive.  Back then, marketing was done with direct mail.  That, along with renting the tent and other expenses, cost $5,000 per event. Fly tyers Weekend has always been a FREE event.  

In 2013, Tremont Lodge and Resort owners asked Little River Outfitters to create events to be held at their lodge, in the 5,000 square foot conference center.  Marketing is now done on the internet and by e-mail, at no cost.  The shop and the lodge, brought back Fly Tyers Weekend in 2014.  It was a huge success.

Free Fly Tying Demonstrations

This is probably the largest fly tying event in the Southeast United States.  There will be fly tyers, who donate their time and travel expenses, here for you to watch, talk to and learn from.  You do not have to be a fly tyer to enjoy and learn from these folks.  They are all excellent fly fishermen as well as fly tyers. They will talk about fishing, as well as tying.

All you have to do is show up at the conference center at Little River Outfitters t in Townsend.  The tyers will be demonstrating between 9 am and 5 pm, both Saturday and Sunday, November 4th and 5th. This event is FREE, all day, both days.  

We are expecting between 40 or more fly tyers.  Many tie trout flies.  Others tie warmwater flies.  There may be a saltwater fly fisherman or two demonstrating.
