2017 HVFFF Poster Final

Fall River Fly Rods and Allen Fly Fishing are pleased to announce that they are hosting the 8th Annual Heber Valley Fly Fishing Festival & Kids Fly Fishing Derby. We hope you will join us for a fantastic day of fly fishing festivities that are entirely free to the public courtesy of Fall River Fly Rods and Allen Fly Fishing.

Anglers of all skill levels are welcomed and encouraged to attend the event so that they may both learn new techniques and fine-tune their skills via the free classes, clinics and demonstrations being offered throughout the weekend by local fly fishing guides & industry experts. Clinics will be held both on and off the water and will be covering both a wide-array of topics and skill levels this year; topics to include basic casting techniques, hands-on casting instruction for intermediate-level situations, “how-to’s” on nymphing technique specific to the Provo River & on the logistics involved with introducing your children to fly fishing, fly tying & leader building demonstrations and much more! 
 
The Heber Valley Fly Fishing Festival will have more than four dozen vendors, artisans and fly club booths, along with a number of industry experts on hand this year so there will be plenty to do, see and try out while there!  Come by and cast the full spectrum of fly rod types available on the market today and see which one is the best fit for your fishing style and needs. Representatives from major players in the industry, as well as local expert guides will be on hand to answer questions & offer up tips and pointers.
 
 Many of the hottest fly rods makers will be on site as well with their demo fly rods for you to try out & Fall River Fly Rod Co.'s in-house bamboo and graphite fly rod designer/builder Jason Zicha will also be on-hand with his entire line of demo bamboo fly rods for those of you who may dream of having that special fly rod built to your specifications.  Round out your day with a little early holiday shopping for the outdoors sportsman in your life as there will be a terrific selection of outdoors artisans as well. 

 
The Provo River Kids Fly Fishing Derby, now sponsored by Adams Built, will be back again this year and is open to kids ages 15 and under. The derby is a catch and release only event that may be fished anywhere on the Middle Provo River & participants must have a parent or legal guardian present at all times; prizes will be awarded the same day for top finishers in each age group and will include several brand-new Adam's Built rod & reel combo rigs. Registration for the Provo River Kids Fly Fishing Derby will be held at the festival information booth beginning at 10am or you may pre-register your child on by contacting Julie at Hebervalleyflyfishingfestival.com.  We will have volunteers on hand to help get your kidlets up to speed should they be new to fly fishing & a LIMITED number of loaner fly rods for those who may not have their own gear. The kids’ derby is open to the first 50 children who register for the event so it may be a good idea to opt for the pre-registration if at all possible.
 
Of course there will also be some friendly competition for the big kids too with Fly Casting Golf and our popular ISE caliber Casting Competition, sponsored by Allen Fly Fishing for both distance and accuracy; top finishers in the amateur and pro divisions will be awarded a new Icon II fly rod the same day of the competitions. We will have a fabulous selection of auction items available this year as well; everything from a single-day, guided float on the Green River to fly rods to art and more all in an effort to fundraise for Project Healing Waters of SLC.  Project Healing Waters works with disabled vets to help them re-engage with "normal" life upon returning home from service and all proceeds from the festival will be for the benefit of the group this year.
 
Finally, we hope you will join us for the free live music from Utah’s own Melody Pulsipher & for the free community BBQ that is being prepared by the International Dutch Oven Society; the free music and food will run Saturday evening only from 5pm to 8 pm.  You may get a little sneak peek at
Melody's beautiful Indie sound here ; we are delighted to have her with us this year!
