2024 Greater Cincinnati Fly Fishing Show
Casting and Fly Tying Workshops
Information and Registration

(Registration Link at Bottom)

For 2024 we will be offering one casting workshop and three 2+ hour tying workshops. All Workshops will be held at the Oasis Conference Center in Loveland, Ohio, the site of the 2024 Greater Cincinnati Fly Fishing Show.

For the casting workshop, attendees need to bring their rod, reel, line and leader. For all tying workshops, you must provide your own vice, thread, and tying tools, including (but not limited to) hair stackers, adhesives (including head cement and brush-on super glue), magnifier if desired, and light (power will be available). Suggested threads you should bring include dark (black/brown), light (tan/white/etc.), and colors (red/yellow/olive) of medium weight ideally, or any weight you have. All other tying materials including hooks will be provided.

You must arrive in time to get set up and be ready to tie at least 5 minutes prior to the start of the workshop. To participate in the Tying Workshops, you must be a reasonably competent tyer, having completed the equivalent of a Beginner fly tying class and have continued to tie flies since that class.

Tying workshops will all be held in Oasis Room Sandalwood C (the "Presentations Room" on the Show floor layout). The casting workshop will take place at the casting pond. Refer to the Show Floor Layout

The casting workshop is limited to 16 participants. All tying workshops will be limited to 24 participants.
