The annual Flyfishing Expo put on by the Lower Umpqua Flycasters proved to be well worth the visit as it appeared to live up to the Expos of previous years. It’s a shame that it’s a six hour long one day event. But it continues to be a great place to pick up flytying and fishing info as well as flyfishing gear and books.
I thought it was great that the Charlston ODFW office had a booth at the Expo and the numerous raffles and the free entry for a door prize were pretty neat, as well. I even found out about a flyfishing shop closer than Eugene, which I intend to check out in the near future.
Steve Godin, who happens to be the hardest-working fishing activist in our area was tying his “Steve’s Herring Streamer” which he claims catches more salmon than herring and other baitfish when trolled behind his boat.
If you are lucky enough to read this when it is first posted, you will still have more than four hours to check out this worthy event before it closes at 3 pm.
