International Fly Tying Symposium - November 19 & 20, 2016

Next weekend the International Fly Tying Symposium is coming to Somerset, New Jersey once again.  

For most people, there’s never enough time or money. For fly-tying addicts, you can add never enough hooks, tools, tying materials or anything else, for that matter.

Fly tiers will get their fill and then some at the 26th annual International Fly Tying Symposium, Nov. 19-20 at the Garden State Exhibit Center, Somerset, NJ.

With a theme of “Never Enough,” the exhibit hall will overflow with more than enough fly-tying materials, hooks, vises, books, video, tools, and more, according to symposium director Chuck Furimsky.

Celebrity fly tiers and Symposium instructors include Jay Fishy Fullum, Tim Cammisa, Bob Clouser, Bob Popovics, Marc Petitjean, Blane Chocklett, Theo Bakelaar, Harry Schoel, Matt Grobert and Enrico Puglisi. They will demonstrate tying techniques, seminars, and teach classes during the weekend-long event.

Cash admission to the event is $15 for Sat., $12 on Sun. or $22 for the weekend. Children under age 16 are free as is parking at the Garden State Exhibit Center. Symposium hours are 9-5 Sat. and 9-4:30 Sun.

“Fly Tying Symposium visitors will see some of the most creative tiers in America and many more from overseas. They'll be more than 100 exhibit tables and 50 booths plus lectures and big screen-featured tiers every hour. Special classes will be available for private instruction … all-in-all, a cornucopia of fly-fishing and fly-tying,” said Furimsky.
