10th annual TieFest set for Feb. 25
Local fishermen will have the chance to meet and learn from internationally-recognized fly anglers at the 10th annual TieFest, the area’s premier fly-fishing show, Saturday, Feb. 25, at the Kent Narrows Yacht Club, Chester, MD, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.
Fly patterns for fishing the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic seaboard will be demonstrated; and questions about casting, techniques and locations where fish can be found fly fishing will be answered. More than 500 anglers from four states are expected to attend.
“TieFest presents a great way to experience fly fishing during the winter months,” said Tony Friedrich, executive director, Coastal Conservation Association Maryland, TieFest sponsor. “What makes it special is that any angler can walk up to the numerous experts attending, ask a personal question, and expect an answer. This doesn’t happen in most other settings.
In addition to tying demonstrations, there will be numerous fishing guides, equipment manufacturers, and fly shops to offer advice on local angling.
“TieFest is a grassroots effort designed to enhance the sport of fly fishing,” Friedrich continued. “During the past few years, the event has grown to include thousands of individuals that enjoy teaching and learning different aspects of the sport.”
