A great event. Press release here:

What started last year as nothing more than just a glimmer in our eye has snowballed into a charity event to be reckoned with. We’ve amassed a group of the region’s best tiers including guides, shop owners and commercial tiers who will put their noses to the vise for eight hours and see how many flies they can produce in the name of Project Healing Waters, a non-profit dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of wounded veterans through fly fishing and fly tying.

Attendees can watch the tiers work their magic, visit with veterans, win hourly door prizes from our sponsors, and enjoy food and drink available by donation including fine craft beer provided by Green Man Brewery (after 12noon). So go ahead and mark your calendars for Sunday, February 26 from 10am-6pm.

Held right in the heart of downtown Asheville at 80 N. Lexington Avenue, Suite C. Advance tickets available for $10 at Hunter Banks, or at the door the day of the event. Presented by Southern Culture on the Fly, The Hunter Banks Company and The Fiberglass Manifesto. For further details, contact David Grossman at [email protected]
