WE ARE delighted to announce our Streamer Lovefest Tying class instructors for 2020 will be the OG Master Russ Maddin and lending an international flavor Canadian talent Nick Groves.

Nick isn’t as well known in the Lower 48 as perhaps some of the other figures that come to the Lovefest but his flies are the one’s all the other tiers are checking out, and was a popular choice among the crew to lead a class.

Russ, of course, combined with Andreas Anderson for a post-Lovefest class later in February, and a couple of hours with this very fishy dude wasn’t enough.

While many would have been happy to sit back and have the legendary Circus Peanut as their career, Russ is one of those never satisfied, pushing testing thinking redesigning.

The two classes will precede our annual Streamer Lovefest streamer party and fundraiser where you can get to watch and meet some of Streamer tying’s finest and most colorful exponents.
