Join us every Wednesday, January through March, for our COMPLIMENTARY Tie-One-On fly tying nights located in Everetts Restaurant at Boyne Mountain Resort!
NEW FOR 2017! Each time you visit, receive one discount card to use towards your purchase of fly tying materials at Boyne Outfitters. In addition, when you use the card, you will be entered into a giveaway at the end of the tying season. One card per session...so join us often for more chances to win!
Bring your vice, materials, and great attitudes to help combat cabin fever during the months where we are dreaming more about fly fishing than actually doing it. If you don't have gear, no worries...we have a selection of complimentary gear for novices, and a full selection of fly tying retail items to help stock your personal supplies.
- DATE(S): Every Wednesday, January through March
- TIME: 5-8p
- LOCATION: Everetts @ Boyne Mountain Resort
- COST: Free!

Fish stories, fresh tied flies, and good times...Guaranteed!
Note: This is a social tying event, and is not intended to be an instructional clinic. We welcome novices, and are happy to answer questions and help you through a technique, but if you are new to fly tying, book a spot at our Beginner's Fly Tying Class to learn the basics.
The original and preeminent exhibition of fly fishing cinema, The Fly Fishing Film Tour is a one of a kind experience. Each year fishy folk of all ages gather at premieres to soak up films from around the world, spin a few yarns amongst friends and dream about casts still unmade. If you've been, you know what we're talking about. If you haven't, we hope to see you soon!
In addition to showcasing world-class fly fishing films, The F3T is dedicated to supporting the local fly shops and conservation groups that form the backbone of our sport's educational and environmental efforts. A portion of ticket sales go directly to support fishing and habitat-related conservation groups. In 2014 we raised over $300,000 for our conservation partners and have used our voice to bring greater attention and support to groups like Trout Unlimited, Wild Steelhead Coalition, Bonefish Tarpon Trust, Utah Stream Access Coalition, Stop Pebble Mine and many more.

Alex Lafkas has been a fly-fishing guide in Northern Michigan since 2000 and has been fly-fishing the Au Sable and Manistee Rivers for over 20 years. Alex began commercial tying in 1994 for Gates AuSable Lodge in Grayling, MI. He has learned from the best anglers and guides on these rivers. He is extremely passionate about fly-fishing, guiding, and fly-tying. Alex's college years took him to Montana where he spent days and nights fishing the Yellowstone, Beaverhead, Madison, and many other great rivers.
There is no off season for Alex; he takes advantage of the extended seasons on both the Au Sable and Manistee Rivers. Years ago he began heading to Arkansas and fishing and guiding on the White and Norfork Rivers in the winter months. He introduced the guides and fishermen on the White River to the big streamer game, a technique which is now considered one of the most effective to target large browns on the Southern Tailwaters.
