Bruce Marino February 8,9,10


I am excited to announce that Bruce Marino,, will be teaching his Guide flies for the Farmington series at Legends BNB Lodge, the weekends of February 8th and February 22nd. Different flies will be tied during each class.

Escape the craziness of winter and social media and join us for an exciting weekend of tying, fishing (weather permitting), and telling stories over dinner with legends and soon to be legends, that share your passion for fly fishing.

Bruce Marino has a storied history that has taken him on fly fishing adventures coast to coast and continent to continent. He has been fly fishing, fly tying and studying entomology for over forty years. His patterns are sold in fly shops throughout the United States.

Bruce is a breath of fresh air in the new paradigm of fly fishing, one where we are constantly bombarded by misleading information and neophytes posting pics of trout held at just the right angle to show off a delusive perspective of size.

All weekends include tying class, lodging Friday and Saturday night, continental breakfast Saturday and Sunday and a delicious family style dinner Saturday evening all for just $295.00 single occupancy.

Check in Friday 1:30 – check out Sunday 11 am. BYOB.


1:30 PM Check in any time after 1:30 – enjoy the Lodge, Fishing or just kicking back and relaxing
