Fly Tying for Children and Teenager

For our young visitors, the 2024 EWF will once again offer our traditional fly tying for kids.
Saturday, 13 April 2024, 9 am – 5 pm
Sunday, 14 April 2024, 9 am – 4:00 pm



On both days, our fly-tying experts will show effective fly patterns to all interested kids and teenagers and will help them learn how the patterns are tied. Special fly-tying stations will be provided in the upper floor of the Barn.
Here you can tie flies to your heart's content and invent new patterns!

Great fly tying competition for young fly tyers!

The Experience the World of Fly Fishing is again sponsoring a Fly Tying Championship for Children and Young Adults.

task is to tie the following fly:

"Jungle fly - tie a fly on the theme of the jungle and, of course, give the fly an adventurous name."

Competition will be in two age groups

  • Ages 12 and under
  • Ages 13 - 16

Tying Time for the competition
Saturday, 13 April 2024, 9 am – 5 pm
Sunday, 14 April 2024, 9 am – 1:30 pm

- We have enough material that can be used for tying, thus, please do not bring your own.
- The competition fly should be tied without much outside help. (We will of course still assist with the head knot and smaller insecurities.)

Evaluation and Price Awarding
An on-site jury will judge the flies. The evaluation of the flies and the subsequent awarding of the prices will take place on Sunday, 14 April at 3 pm at the fly tying table for children and teenagers. Winners who are not present at that time will be notified in writing.

The best tyers will receive certificates and special prizes.
