This gathering of legendary fly tyers, their exhibits and demonstrations will delight both seasoned and novice tyers. With more than 40 tyers providing instruction, the LRO Fly Tyers Weekend is one of the largest gatherings of tyers in the Eastern United States… and its FREE.

Come learn to tie freshwater and saltwater flies alike. These experts will share their experiences as well as tips on how and where to get the best results from fishing their flies. Demonstrations will be held both days from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Food will be available for purchase on site, provided by the local group of Casting For Recovery (CFR) members. Selling food at this event is a fundraiser for CFR.

While the main events are held just down the road at Tremont Lodge & Resort come down and browse Little River Outfitters more than 7,000 square feet of indoor retail space and see their abundant selection of tying materials, fly rods, reels, lines and accessories. Our knowledgeable staff will be on hand to answer any questions about equipment and/or fly fishing tactics.

Little River Outfitters is located in Townsend, Tennessee, near the entrance of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which offers an ideal setting for this anglers’ event. Freestone trout streams, tailwaters, warmwater lowland rivers and even lake fishing abounds here and early November is an excellent month to fish. Early lodging reservations are suggested for this busy time of the year due to the leaf color change.

You do not have to be a fly tyer to enjoy this event. The people who are demonstrating are seasoned anglers, with a diverse background, fly fishing their home waters for trout, warwater species and saltwater fish. You may ask them about their fly fishing experiences, and learn more about our sport.
