The Derby City Fly Fishers will host our annual Kentuckiana Fly Fishing Show on Saturday, January 21, 2023, 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Paroquet Springs Conference Center located at 395 Paroquet Springs Drive, Shepherdsville, Ky. Admission is $10. Active military and children 12 and under are free.
The Kentuckiana Fly Show is focused on fly fishing and the tools to allow anyone to pursue the sport from beginner to accomplished and everywhere in between. We will have over 40 vendors and exhibiters from surrounding states to make purchases or just ask questions. Casting demonstrations and seminars on fly fishing will be presented throughout the day. We will also have fly tiers demonstrating the art and craft of fly tying. As usual, we will have “Kids Corner” where children of all ages are welcome to tie a fly that they can take with them. All tools and materials will be furnished free of charge. In addition, representatives from the Kentucky and Indiana Departments of Fish and Wildlife will be available to answer any questions concerning state fishing regulations and opportunities.
Always a lot of fun and looked forward to is the “Iron Fly” tying competition. Each tyer will be given a mystery ingredient, revealed at the show, to incorporate in his or her fly. Judging will be based upon use of the mystery ingredient, workmanship, beauty, and fish ability.
Casting instruction will be conducted throughout the day for anyone interested in learning to cast a fly rod.
DCFF welcomes all to learn more about fly fishing and our website provides more information concerning our club as well as various trips for members to participate. The trips provide an excellent opportunity to learn more about the sport of fly fishing.
