Also among the tiers will be jig tiers crafting lures that are effective for the area's "white perch".

Seminars covering a variety of fishing topics will be presented by local and regional experts. Seminars start at 9:30am and continue through the day.

Need to improve your fly casting skills? One of the region's top fly casting instructors will be on hand with instruction and casting coaching.

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 a raffle and Gamblers Draw.  Items include tackle, flies, lures, accessories, homemade goods, and many other items. Net proceeds to benefit The Food Bank of Central Louisiana and the Fly Fishers International Gulf Coast Council.
