THE Days are counting down to January 30 and the annual Streamer Lovefest and there are drift boats, tying kits and rod tubes heading this way from all over the country.
The Lovefest kicks off at 6.30 pm Saturday night with the premiere of our “Chasing The Donkey” DVD. Tying Demonstrations kick off around 7.30pm with some of the best streamer fly tyers in the country showing off their skills including Kelly Galloup, Michael Schmidt, Chad Johnson, Alex Lafkas, Brian Wise, Steve Dally, Jeff Trigg, Dave Hosler and Matt Bennett.
There will be plenty of time to yarn to each tyer too, pick their brains, tell a story or listen to a good one, its what the even is all about.
Get in early Saturday to pick up a ticket for the drawing to win our annual Streamer Lovefest Streamer Box, and one of 2 Yeti Coolers, and you could get a killer “early worm” prize from Yeti.
The first 48 ticket buyers (one per purchase) will get either a Yeti Coldster can holder or Lowball cup.
The coveted Streamer Lovefest Box drawing includes at least 1 fly from every tyer on the draw card loaded in an Montana Fly Co Waterproof Fly Box. Yeti have also donated a Tundra 50 and a Hopper 30 as separate major prizes for the drawing.
