#8 Reason to Go to IFTD – Iron Fly Competition
The Iron Fly is always a crowd favorite. Industry professionals join pro fly tyers at one long table, littered with a jumble of miscellaneous fly tying supplies. Add in a mystery “ingredient” that must be used in the fly, and things are bound to get interesting.
