The 28th Annual Dr. Ed Rizzolo Fly Tying Festival

February 8 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

The following description was taken from the Texas Flyfishers, Houston notice for this event.

Dear Fellow Fly Fishing Enthusiast, I hope you are making plans to attend the 28th Annual Dr. Ed Rizzolo Fly Tying Festival. This year’s festival will take place on Saturday, February 8th, 2020 from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm at the Bethany Christian Church, 3223 Westheimer Road in Houston, Texas.  As always, this event is open to the public.  Coming from all areas of Texas and the surrounding states, tyers of all skill levels and all disciplines will be on hand to demonstrate their particular talents, patterns or styles of tying. This great event usually draws upwards of 50 tyers demonstrating cold water, warm water and saltwater flies. The featured tyer for the Festival will be Gunnar Brammer of Duluth, Minnesota. If you’re not familiar with Gunnar, he is one of fly tying’s most amazing young tyers. Gunnar specializes in designing and tying predator flies for all big game species, with bait fish patterns ranging from 3-inch Smallmouth patterns all the way to 14-inch BEAST Styled Musky, to Offshore Flies and everything in between. If you would like to learn more about Gunnar along with his patterns and impressive style of tying, visit his website at https://www.streamersbygunnar.com/  or Brammer’s Custom Flies on YouTube. I can assure you, you won’t be disappointed. From its humble beginnings in April, 1993, the Festival has grown into one of the top fly tying events in Texas, consistently attracting the top fly tiers from all over the country. This event could not have reached the level of notoriety it has without the support of tyers like you. With your continued support, it is our hope that the Dr. Ed Rizzolo Fly Tying Festival will continue to grow. I hope you will make plans to be at this great event.
