Feb 1 @ 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM

Looking for something fun to do on a cold winter evening? Look no further. Join Roaring Fork Conservancy, Roaring Fork Valley Fly Fishing Club and Roaring Fork Fishing Guide Alliance for the 5th annual Iron Fly Competition on Saturday, February 1 at The Tipsy Trout in Basalt.

Iron Fly is a fly tying competition combined with a little, friendly competition. Competitors are provided with secret and “funky” materials that must be used in each fly. The youth division for ages 16 and under, starts at 4:00pm.  Adult Competition starts at 6:30pm.

COMPETITORS are asked to bring a fly tying vise and fly tying tools (there will be some on hand to borrow if you don’t have any), and be willing to share some supplies with fellow competitors. Fly tying materials will be provided.

Before registering as a competitor check out the IRON FLY RULES:

1. Have fun!
2. Bribing judges is okay.
3. Cheating is okay.
4. Rules? Haha, there really are no rules. But, be prepared for new rules to be created at any point of the competition.  

Can’t handle the rules?  Consider not competing and be a spectator. This is a fun event not to be taken too seriously.

Drink and menu specials will be available at The Tipsy Trout!

Please register in advance (especially competitors!) at www.roaringfork.org/events
