This year's event will be held right here at Little River Outfitters in Townsend. More than 40 of the Southeast’s best fly tiers will be on hand demonstrating everything from tiny midges to large saltwater patterns. This is going to be our premier event of the year.

Little River Outfitters will once again host of the annual Fly Tyers Weekend to be held October 27 & 28, at our fly shop and fly fishing school in Townsend, Tennessee. This gathering of legendary fly tiers, their exhibits and demonstrations will delight both seasoned and novice tiers. With more than 40 tiers providing instruction, the LRO Fly Tyers Weekend is one of the largest gatherings of tiers in the Eastern United States… and its FREE.

Come learn how 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 members.

While the main events are held under canopy outdoors, there will be the option to browse LRO’s more than 7,000 square feet of indoor retail space and see their abundant selection of tying materials, fly rods, reels, lines and accessories. Their knowledgeable staff will be on hand to answer any questions about equipment and/or fly fishing tactics.

Little River Outfitters is located near the entrance of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which offers an ideal setting for this anglers’ event. Freestone trout streams, tail-waters warmwater lowland rivers and even lake fishing abound here and October is an excellent month to fish them. Early lodging reservations are suggested for this busy time of the year.

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