WRITERS ON THE FLY - West Coast Tour 2024

The upcoming Writers on the Fly West Coast Tour was recently announced and I sure hope that this typically left coast series of events make it to the southeast coast at some point.  If you're in the area and around on the dates listed below, make some time for this.

From Jason Rolfe of Writers on the Fly...

Writers on the Fly (WOTF), the popular fly fishing reading series and pop-up art show, hits the road again this April with their 2024 West Coast Tour. The Spring tour brings WOTF’s unique mix of fly fishing literature and art to Northern California and southern Oregon, kicking things off in San Francisco and finishing up in Eugene, OR, four days later.

Presented by Sage Fly Fishing, and with additional support from The Flyfish Journal and RIO Products, the 2024 West Coast Tour schedule is as follows:

    Wednesday, 4/24: San Francisco, CA w/ Lost Coast Outfitters

    Thursday, 4/25: Sacramento, CA w/ Fly Fishing Specialties

    Friday, 4/26: Ashland, OR w/ Ashland Fly Shop

    Saturday, 4/27: Eugene, OR w/ Caddis Fly Shop

WOTF began in 2015, establishing itself as one of the most unique, engaging and authentic in-person event series in the fly fishing community. Since its inception, the shows have cycled around the Pacific Northwest with the well-known Cascadia Tour—but this Spring the show expands down the West Coast.

Four talented and inspiring writers and anglers are slotted to share some of their favorite work at each event, along with a featured artist and a local non-profit that will benefit from raffle proceeds and donations. Raffle prizes from Sage Fly Fishing, RIO, and more will be up for grabs.

Headlining the West Coast Tour is writer, filmmaker, musician, conservationist, and troubadour Nathaniel Riverhorse Nakadate. Poet and fishing guide Anne Landfield will join him, along with local writers at each stop. Artist James Sampsel’s work will be on display, and attendees will have the opportunity to support non-profit organizations through prize drawings and donations.
