LIVINGSTON MANOR, NY — The Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum will hold its first event of the 2013 season with Fly Fest on February 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 1031 Old Rte. 17. Fifty fly tyers will show off their skills with a day of feather bending, clipping and swapping flies. From novices to experienced casters, everyone is invited to share ideas and improve their tying skills. Fly Fest, which is sponsored by Catskill Flies, is a sure sign that opening day of trout season is about six weeks away. Call 845/439-4810, or to sign up as a tyer visit and go to the forum under fly tying.
