We recently visited the Renzetti (www.renzetti.com) Fly Tying and Rod Building Symposium in Titusville, Florida. I figured I’d arrive and there would be a handful of attendees but was amazed when I drove by the factory. The lot was packed and there were cars lined up down the street. I had no idea that there were that many fly tiers in the central Florida area. All in all, it was a great event with many big names in attendance. Take a look a few snap shots from the festivities.
