Steve “Scooby” Stubbe will also be attending to showcase his collection of custom rods and share stories about his fishing adventures around Louisiana.

Local fly tying expert, Fred Hannie, along with local master caster, Jeff Ferguson will be on hand with other instructors to teach and assist event attendees with the basics of fly rod casting.

“This is the first time to have a venue that allows the fly casters and tyers an indoor facility to perform their skills.

We hope our hometown folks will come out to support,” said Jeff Ferguson, chairman of the expo.
