10 Years of Summer Celebration at the AMFF

The 10th annual AMFF Fly Fishing Festival returns to beautiful Manchester, VT on August 12th this year. This is our signature event of the summer- a growing event that showcases the joy of fly fishing with vendors, demonstrations, and a gathering of people who are all equally enthused about the sport. Come enjoy fly tying and casting demonstrations, food vendors and lessons. Try your hand at casting vintage rods, learn how to tie a saltwater fly, and mingle with likeminded people as you share the taste and joy of the great outdoors. Keep checking our event page for updates on vendors, guest fly fishing and fly tying instructors, performers, and much more.
