The Maine Bar Fly ticket and info page!
The Maine Bar Fly series is a unique event where we mix fly tying with enjoying some of Maine's best local breweries! You will learn various patterns, applicable fishing techniques, gear suggestions, entomology, and more. Various prizes will also be up for grabs during the raffle including fly fishing gear from top brands, fly tying materials, and gift certificates!
These events are designed to include not only veteran tyers but beginners as well. You do not need any fly tying experience to enjoy these nights and even further, we encourage those who have never even tied a fly to join! Featured tyers will take participants step-by-step through the various stages of each fly with additional volunteers available for one-on-one.
Included in the purchase of a ticket is a vise plus all of the tying materials and tools that you will need for the night. No need to bring anything! We will have a tying station all set up for each participant. However, you are welcome to bring your own tools and vise.
The goal with these Maine Bar Fly nights is to help those who attend become as proficient and informed anglers and fly tiers as possible. Whether it's specifics on the tying techniques, fishing tactics, or the fish's behavior, we are focused on always providing everyone with both the "how" and the (ever important) "why."
FUNDRAISING + CONSERVATION
These events are also ways in which we raise funds for our conservation efforts! This year we will be working with the Gulf of Maine Research Institute and the Atlantic Salmon Federation. Through the raffles we hold each night with generous donations from our manufacturers and suppliers, 100% of the ticket sales go towards donations to these two organizations.
Fly Tying Vises: If you purchase a vise from us you will receive a FREE ticket to the Maine Bar Fly of your choice.
