Expo Workshops

2020 Expo
Fly Tying, Fly Casting
Fly Fishing and Women’s

You can sign-up for the workshops at Jimmy’s All Seasons Angler at 275 A Street, Idaho Falls or call the shop at 208-524-7160.

This year is our 27th year for the Expo and we have a great lineup of instructors. We believe our Expo is unique for the Northern Rockies and Northwest because our workshops are inexpensive and provide hands-on instruction. We are very pleased to have Pat Dorsey as our featured tyer this year. He is considered one of the most talented fly tyer and fly fishermen in the country.

These workshops are generally for a maximum of 10 people, are very educational and highly instructive.  Most years the workshops fill up prior to the Expo starting, so pre-registering is highly recommended. We are proud to offer our workshops at a very affordable rate, making instruction from some top notch fly fishers possible for everyone.
