A Note From The Director

Please notice: This information is from the IFTS in 2016

The Symposium will return in 2017 in Lancaster.
We will update this site with the latest information on exhibitors, tyers, casters and other attractions as soon as it is available.

No matter how much fly tying knowledge you have or the amount of fly tying material, hooks, vises, books, tools and more, it is never enough. The symposium is the ultimate candy store for fly tiers. There has to be close to everything ever used for tying on display and for sale, plus all the latest new materials and hottest patterns to keep you busy all weekend. When the symposium ends you are loaded with fresh ideas.

Visit some of the most creative tiers in America and many from overseas. There will be 100 tables and booths ready for you, plus lectures, big screen featured tiers every hour, and the chance to meet some of the best tiers in the world. Don’t miss a chance to take one of our special morning limited classes. See the selection in the brochure or on our website. Register early before the classes are sold out. All the symposium seminars, author’s booth, mini-pond fly demos, “Featured Fly Tier” are all here for you as part of your show ticket. So pick your favorites and make a plan.

New this year in our seminar room is “Meet the Bloggers.” A panel of your favorite bloggers will field questions about our sport, about their blogs, and give you a chance to talk in person to those you have only followed on social media. And as always, our Saturday evening banquet is fantastic, with surprises, lots of tying give-a-ways, door prizes, and attendees are welcome as tickets remain. Check early if you plan to attend.

The adjoining DoubleTree Hotel has special lodging rates so call 732-469-2600 for the symposium package. Tell your friends or bring them along. You won’t be disappointed.
