Free Fly Tying Demonstrations at Little River Outfitters...a lasting tradition.


We have been holding Free Fly Tying Demonstrations at Little River Outfitters for almost 20 years. In fact, we hold lots of free events for our customers to enjoy. Our Free Fly Tying Demonstrations are held during the Winter on Saturdays. We may have one, two or three on any given day.

It gives people something to do when the weather is bad and fishing may be slow.

You don’t have to be a fly tyer to get a lot out of these Saturday events. You will be talking to expert anglers. You can ask questions and learn about fishing specific rivers or lakes.

These small events last for 4 hours, between 10 am and 2 pm. They are subject to be called off due to snow or ice storms. But, for the most part, they happen, as scheduled.

If you are coming, and bad weather is looming, check our fishing report to make sure the event has not been canceled.

Just show up at the shop, grab a fresh cup of coffee, warm up by the fireplace then sit down to enjoy and learn. It will certainly be worth your time and be beneficial to your fly fishing in the future.



Free Fly Tying Demonstration Schedule 2018

Saturday December 15, 2018 - 10 am - 2 pm - Jack Gregory
and Walter Babb

JACK GREGORY - Jack is one of my closest friends. He grew up in Walland, just down the road from Townsend. He has spent most of his life, fly fishing the Smoky Mountains. He is known for catching big brown trout. What you may not know is, Jack has traveled all over America fly fishing, and has a passion and lots of experience, fishing for permit in Belize. He and I have traveled and fished together for 20 years. We do a lot of smallmouth bass fly fishing in this area too. We have also fished together in the Gulf, many times, fly fishing for tarpon and anything that swims in the ocean.

WALTER BABB - Walter Babb grew up, fly fishing the Southern Appalachian trout streams, and has traveled extensively to other states, to fish. His tenure as a fly fisherman dates back nearly 60 years. He is considered an expert on the subject of this sport, in our region. He spent many years tying flies to sell, when he was younger. He has been teaching fly tying and fly fishing at Little River Outfitters for nearly 20 years. We consider Walter a walking encyclopedia on fly fishing for trout, mainly due to his vast knowledge and very good memory. He is a very friendly and good man, who you will enjoy meeting and spending your time with this Saturday.

Today, Walter still teaches at the LRO school, but most of his time spent working, is devoted to his bamboo fly rod making business. He is a very well known maker, whose rods are sought after by many in America. Walter lives in Sweetwater, Tennessee.
