In addition to the competition, the stream-side grounds of Emerson Resort & Spa will serve as the backdrop for non-competitors to enjoy several fly fishing related events including fly casting demonstrations, fly tying, special guests, and an array of vendors. Vendor booths will include a range of wares from local makers to well known fly fishing retailers. On-site food and beverages will be offered throughout the day provided by the Emerson's world class staff. Live music and a five star dinner for competing anglers and their guests will be held on Saturday night at The Catamount, Emerson Resort's lodge-style event space. There, the tournament winners will be announced and the first champions of this long overdue free style fly fishing event in the Catskills will be crowned.
