Little Missouri Fly Fishing Festival in Murfreesboro, AR.
The Eleventh Ever Little Mo' Fly Fishing Festival will in fact, once again, be at the Murfreesboro Municipal Building - that's one block east of the Pike County Court House Square on Main Street. Circle around the Court House and turn right after Hawkins Variety Store. We collect a very minimal registration fee of $5 per person or just $10 for the whole family. I want to keep that cost low but there are things I have to cover after all! President's Day Weekend 2013! February 16-17th
