Fly Fest and IceCapades February 12, 2011
Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum

For Immediate Release January 6, 2011
Livingston Manor, New York 845-439-4810 flyfish@catskill.net

On Saturday, February 12 from 10 AM 4 PM The Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum (CFFCM), in cooperation with sponsors Catskill Flies and ClassicTrout.com will host the Fourth annual Fly Fest and the second IceCapades.

Fly Fest is a gathering of 50+ fly tyers who get together every year in the CFFCM to tie flies and
minimize cabin fever and mid winter blues. Both professional and amateur tyers from all over the Northeast come to share their latest patterns, swap stories and tie flies for the upcoming season. Visitors are welcome to enjoy the warmth of the day inside and pick up some pointers from the group. On this day, Fly Tyers are sure to see their shadow and return to their basements for another 6 weeks of fly tying, just in time to return for the 2011 Trout Season Opener at Junction Pool in Roscoe, NY. Volunteer Coordinators for this event are JB Martin, Jack Ganz, and Catskill John Bonasera.

For those who enjoy the cold and the excitement of ice fishing, the CFFCM will host the second IceCapades. IceCapades is an open day to all to fish on the CFFCM Pond. Last year a number of large yellow perch and brown trout were caught. Participants will be encouraged to donate $5 to fund the spring pond stocking for childrens fishing educational programs, on pond demonstrations and for those physically challenged. A member will be on hand to drill holes and those wishing to make their own can take advantage of a hand ice auger that will be available. Hot dogs and warm drinks will be available and fun will be had by all.

IceCapades is coordinated by Mike Canazon, Jan Weido and CFFCM friends from the Mid Hudson Trout Unlimited.
For more information call: The CFFCM at 845-439-4810
