Museum Holds Annual Fly Fest & IceCapades

On February 12, 2011 from 10 AM to 4 PM The Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum in Livingston Manor, NY is again hosting their annual Fly Fest and IceCapades. This is the fourth year for the Fly Fest and the second year for the IceCapades.

Dump the winter blues and cure your cabin fever by joining over 50 fly tiers who come form all over the northeast to get together for some fun, share their new patterns and techniques and tell some stories of fish caught and lost.

If you like ice fishing then you'll like the IceCapades where anglers willing to brave the cold try their luck ice fishing the museums pond where large yellow perch and brown trout lurk under the frozen surface. A member will be on hand to drill your ice fishing hole or drill your own with the hand auger that will be made available. Participants are encouraged to make a minimum $5 donation to fund children's educational programs. Mike Canazon, Jan Weido and CFFCM friends from the Mid Hudson Trout Unlimited will be running this event.

Fly Fest is sponsored by the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum, Catskill Flies and ClassicTrout.com
