It’s time for the 3rd annual Rogue on the Fly! Held at Indian May Park on the Rogue River, ROTF is bigger and better than ever! A weekend long event, ROTF includes Spey casting presentations from some of our region’s experts, booth presentations from our products reps, fly-fishing games, fly-tying demos, great food, live music, camping, and more!
Our tops product reps will be on hand to show off the latest gear including rods that you can demo on the water. We are once again having a raffle, with some great prizes, the proceeds of which will benefit our conservation groups.
Rogue on the Fly is about steelhead, conservation, education, and most important, having a good time! Call it a Clave, a gathering, whatever you want. We call it Rogue on the Fly!
