The 4th Annual Fly Tying Contest began on April 15 and concluded on September 16, 2016. During this time period, dozens of amazing flies were submitted by veteran participants from across the country. Each fly was judged by a fly-tying panel comprised of PHWFF volunteers, celebrity fly tiers and professionals. Out of the many incredible flies entered, a total of 5 finalists were selected. Each of the finalists will attend the International Fly Tying Symposium at the Garden State Exhibit Center in Somerset, NJ on November 19 – 20, 2016, at which time an awards ceremony will be held announcing the winners.
In addition to the amazing opportunity to travel to, and attend, the International Fly Tying Symposium, those finalists selected as winners will receive great prizes from our friends at Regal Vise.
