East Idaho Fly Tying Expo

It's about that time of year again. I'm invited to East Idaho Fly Tying Expo for two consecutive years. I'm excited to visit one of the best fly-fishing & -tying events in the West.

I'd like to make announcement too. This year, I will be conducting a Fly Tying Workshop: Dynamite Flies for Livingston's Spring Creeks (& Beyond).
It's quite an honor and an opportunity for me to share my own original spring-creek patterns, also theories and stories behind as well. As the title suggests, the class primary focus is Livingston's spring creek patterns, however patterns I will introduce can be applied to other types of waters.
Of course I'm on the table during the floor sessions. Here are this year's roster patterns!
My most known COYOTE in Atlantic Salmon Fly variation!!
So my schedule during the Expo is:
Friday, April 22nd: 8:15AM - Noon  Workshop  (with students who have signed-up)
                                3:00 - 6:00PM Floor session Table #8
Saturday, April 23rd: 9:30 - 10:30AM Fly Tying Theater (Free program)
                                  Noon - 4:00PM Floor session Table #8        

Yes!! I will be on the stage, again, for Fly Tying Theater!! - again, I'm quite honored!! I'm planning to demonstrate different patterns/techniques from Workshop and floor sessions.
There will be many other great fly-tyers. I hope to visit their tables and programs and learn something from them too. For more details, please click the link.
It will be very exciting, busy, and meaningful two days in Idaho Falls!! I hope to see friends, neighborhood fishermen, blog-readers, YouTube subscribers, and many others!!

Here are some scenes from the weekend.........
For some reasons, this tiny cute Cutty meant a lot for us!!, especially for this old boy!!

So, this is why we can't attend the annual Yellowstone River Cleanup this year. Then, this is why we went ahead and picked up some trashes for the past several weekends along Yellowstone River (and some other spots). Hopefully River God would understand and offer us safe journeys (on the road and river)!!

Hope to have lots of pictures and stories from Idaho Falls for the next post!


  1. Wishing you a prosperous showing this upcoming weekend. I'm certain your lessons will be the highlight for many.
