Little Missouri Fly Fishing

Well folks, I'm definitely not running the Festival in 2021 for obvious reasons and I dare say, at this point, I doubt that the Festival will return at all. There's just too many things on the Fly Fishing calendar every year that everything was getting diluted and my need to be home more is becoming ever more important. So, the Eighteenth Ever in 2020 may well have been the last of the Little Mo' Fly Fishing Festival in this incarnation!
Eighteen years was a good run and I hope to see everyone on the river otherwise!

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! There's also the $5 "Can You Take It" casting Clinic on Sunday morning - 10:00!

See you all there!!!
