Great Lakes Fly Shop is thrilled to return as an exhibitor for the 2018 Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo.  We have been preparing all winter and the tying table has been on fire as we feverishly fill the fly bins. John Fehnel will be offering a fly tying workshop Saturday March 17th @ 1:15 – 2:15 on Tying the Hwy 53 Dahlberg.  The line up of free clinics and workshops will surely satisfy all fly anglers curiosities

This is Your Expo: Save the Date: March 16-18th 2018, Hamline University in St. Paul, MN

Originally conceived by Tom Helgeson, The Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo has been a fixture of the Upper Midwest fly fishing community for many years.  Minnesota Trout Unlimited is excited to be leading a new and expanded Expo to help focus on its core mission:

” The Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo is a celebration of fly fishing, its environs and the people who share in its majesty.”

The expo is the largest fly fishing event in Minnesota. With vendors from the region and across the country including fly shops, guides, top brands, outfitters and non-profits, they offer the newest and best in the world of fly fishing. They also place a strong emphasis on fly fishing education and there will be over three dozen free programs and seminars, as well as on-going free casting instruction taking place over the three days of the event. Proceeds benefit the non-profit Minnesota Trout Unlimited.
