This event is free and open to the public.  The Fair features free casting lessons, free tying lessons, free beginner classes, tying demonstrations, and free classes.  Class size is limited, so registration is strongly suggested as some classes will fill up early.

On Friday, there will be workshops, including Continuing Education for CCI Members.

On Friday evening, there will be a Jambalaya Buffet, followed by Awards and a Live Auction at the Ocean Springs Yacht Club, 100 Front Beach Drive.  The Auction will feature fly tackle, guided trips, artwork, fly plates, and much more!  Half of the proceeds will be donated to the University of Southern Mississippi - Gulf Coast Research Lab, which is responsible for a number of projects in conjunction with the Gulf Coast Council.

Saturday is a day full of activities, including casting, tying, vendors, exhibitors, workshops, raffles, and much, much more.  The list of casting instructors is impressive, with a number of IFFF Certified Casting Instructors (CCIs) as well as Master Certified Instructors (MCIs).
