Make plans now for Red Stick Day on March 2nd

Our 26th annual Red Stick Day is coming up Saturday, March 2nd.  Red Stick Day is our fly fishing festival - a celebration of our sport featuring great programs, fly tying demonstrations, casting instruction, good food, loads of raffle items, and more.  And best of all, admission is free!

We're thrilled to announce that this year's event returns to the LDWF Waddill Outdoors Education Center off North Flannery Road.  The ponds on the premises are full of big bass and bluegill, so bring your fly tackle.  The ponds will also be the site for casting instruction during the day.

Once again, we have great programs lined up. Ian Huang, Orvis Baton Rouge Fishing Manager, will talk on destination fishing. Vic Tedesco, one of the top speckled trout experts on the Gulf Coast, will talk on fly fishing the Grand Isle area. Jim Davis, renown Tennessee and Virginia tailwaters guide, will talk on trout fishing that area for big browns and rainbows. And finally, Jay Clark, one of the nation's top flycasters and former member of Team USA, will give a presentation on casting.

Over a dozen of the region's top fly tiers will also be on hand to demonstrate their various flies, along with their favorite legacy patterns. Attendees can watch and learn the step-by-step process to making a great fish-catching lure from scratch.

Details about the event, including speaker and tier bios, schedule of activities, and more can be found by clicking on the 2019 Red Stick Day link above.
