Light Tackle Festival

9:00am - 3:30pm
Kees Park Civic Center, Pineville, LA
FREE admission!

Hosted by the Kisatchie Fly Fishers, this biennial festival is a celebration of fly fishing, kayak fishing and light tackle fishing. Whether beginner or expert, there's something for everyone! 

Activities include:
- Programs
- Kayak rigging
- Fly Tying Demonstrations
- Fly casting Clinics
- Beginners Seminar
- Exhibitors
- Raffles
and more!


Our speakers list currently includes:
- one of Louisiana's top crappie experts
- one of north Arkansas' top fly fishing guides
- one of Toledo Bend's top bass and fly fishing guides
- more to come!

Fly tying begins at 9:00am and continues through the day. Many of the region's top fly tiers will be on hand.  Unlike most fly fishing events, this is "open invitation".  We have 40 seats available.  Last time, all 40 seats were filled a month in advance!

Lunch and soft drinks will be available for a nominal cost.  Bottled water will be available free during the day, provided by KFF.

There's also raffle and silent auction for flies, tackle, equipment, and other items. Proceeds from the raffle benefit our Fly Fishing 101, Cenla National Hunting and Fishing Day, and local conservation projects.

We currently have only seven (7) exhibitor spaces left and 31 tying spaces left.
