Fly Tyer’s Symposium and Gear Swap – November 15

New Mexico Trout is sponsoring a a Fly Tyers’ Symposium and Gear Swap! The event will be held Saturday, November 15th at the NM Veteran’s Memorial (1100 Louisiana Blvd SE) from 10 AM until 4 PM. We will have ten tyers demonstrating various styles of flies suited to tempt fall-spawning trout as well as the tyers’ signature patterns.   Bring your cameras and philosophical questions (as long as they deal with fly fishing)!

gear-swap-logoWe’re going to try something new by holding a gear swap as part of the tyers’ symposium.   Do you have gently used, under-appreciated gear that can go to a better cause? (Like putting some cash back into your fishing fund!)   Bring it down and put it out for sale. We are also setting aside a table for donated items to benefit Project Healing Waters. These donated items will be priced to sell, and proceeds will go directly to PHW. Please be generous.

If any of you have experience running a gear swap, we’d appreciate you sharing your expertise. For any questions or comments about either the tyers’ symposium or the gear swap, please e-mail Mike at:
