The 26th annual Eastern Idaho Fly Tying/Fly Fishing Expo is set for March 29-30 at the Shilo Inn Convention Center. Run by the Snake River Cutthroats Fly Fishing Club, admission for this educational gathering is free. The doors open at 8 a.m.

More than 100 tyers from around the world will be showing off their skills in one-on-one settings.

The Expo is famous for hands-on workshops that are the envy of other shows and expositions in the Northwest. The tying workshops, taught by some of the best instructors in the country, include Steven Fernandez, Boots Allen, Gary Barnes, Charlie Craven and others.

Casting workshops taught by certified casting instructors are available, as well as two workshops on tying and fly fishing designed especially for women. Other activities include a tying theater where regionally recognized tyers demonstrate their well-known flies and techniques.

Proceeds from the Expo go towards conservation projects on local waters in southeastern Idaho and for youth and adult education on fly fishing.
