From the 2011 International Fly Tying Symposium

I was finally able to make it down to the International Fly Tying Symposium to take in everything fly tying. My focus was mainly to check out all things streamer, but I managed to sneek in a little bit more as well. I took a few pictures to share, you can check out the set here.

Here are a few images from the weekend.

Crow Warrior - Mike Martinek

Shawn Davis Grey Ghost

It was a bit of a drive from Ontario, but well worth the trip. I had a chance to meet quite a number of tyers that I have met online over the last few years, and even a few of the tyers taking part in the streamer project. I was only able to stay for the Saturday show, and that was hardly enough time. I could have spent another day just getting around to see all the tyers present. Thanks to everyone who made it an enjoyable weekend.

    Great pics Darren,just too bad you werent able to be just an impartial observer and take more but judging by what is here you were probably like a kid in a candy shop and did not know where to start.

    Thanks for checking out the pics David. I really wish I had taken more, but there are just too many people to chat with at the show. 🙂 Hope to see you there next year.

    A wonderful photographic diary, Thank you Darren. I was unable to get there this year, but nothing shy of death will keep me away next year 🙂
