It’s coming… with a little different program this year, our annual fly fishing fest is going online and live with the Duranglers Spring 2021 Virtual Fly Fishing Festival! This time, we will be celebrating with a FULL WEEK of live streaming events, clinics, interviews, seminars, and of course…gear giveaways.
We will be kicking off our fest on April 5th and running through April 10th! Mark your calendars and plan to tune in to YouTube for daily videos and a 5pm live stream each weeknight, and get yourself prepared with new knowledge, techniques, fun, conservation, fly tying, and as always a healthy dose of gear giveaways.
Teaming up with our friends and partners from Sage, Rio, Simms, Patagonia, Orvis, Scientific Anglers, Ross Reels, Fishpond, Redington, Fulling Mill, Trout Unlimited, RepYourWater, G. Loomis, and Loon; we have a full week of videos we will be uploading as well as LIVESTREAMING where you can tune in, learn a few things, ask some questions, and get ready for the season.
We will also be giving away great gear from all our friends and partners. You will be able to sign up for our gear drawing giveaways from the 5th through the 10th (one entry per day) on any of our YouTube Fest videos or Fest Livestreams (signup links are in the video details). You will also get additional drawing entries into the pot with every $50 you spend in-store or online throughout our fest week.
Prize drawings will be held on YouTube and Instagram live on Saturday the 10th after our presentation. Winners will be announced live, but will also be contacted via phone or e-mail…so you don’t have to be present to win.
