New Jersey and Fly Fishing – Perfect Together!

New Jersey is home to some wonderful opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Whether you are on the Big Flatbrook in Sussex County or fishing out of the Atlantic Highlands, there is a fishing experience available regardless of your ability level or species interest. New Jersey has approximately 8,600 miles of streams and rivers, over 400 public ponds, lakes, and reservoirs, 83 miles of bayshores, and 127 miles of Atlantic coastline. Talk about plenty of angling opportunities!

This weekend is a great event in the Garden State if you are a fan of fly fishing. The International Fly Tying Symposium brings the best of the best from all over the world to New Jersey – yes, New Jersey. The expo floor is at the Garden State Exhibit Center in Somerset and lectures and classes are held next door at the Double Tree Hotel.

This is one of my favorite weekends of the year. Why you might ask? My husband I get to see our angling friends from all over the world – right in our own backyard. We are fly fishing instructors and love to help people get started in fly fishing or learn more about all the great fishing opportunities in our state.

If you decide to check out the show, we will be at the Shu-Fly booth. Make sure to stop by and say hi and ask us about all the great fishing opportunities you can find in New Jersey!
