CFFCM will be celebrating the 2019 Season Opening on Saturday, April 6, with a day full of activities, which are listed below:
Congressman Antonio Delgado (D-19th) will cast into Wulff Run, next to the bridge to the center, at 9:30 a.m.
At 10 a.m., return to the Gift Shop for a cup of Agnes Van Put’s famous soup, coffee and cookies. The Museum and Gallery will be open.
Catskill Cane Revival
The Catskill Cane Revival will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at the Roscoe High School Gym. Bamboo rod afficionados will loosen their arms and practice story-telling just up the bend from Keener’s Pool. Bring a bamboo rod of your own or try one of ours. See some old friends and meet some new ones. Bring a friend or a kid you want to get hooked and we’ll put a cane rod in their hand.
There will be tours of the Bamboo Rod Shop in the Wulff Gallery during the afternoon.
Fly Tyers Rendezvous
The Catskill Fly Tyers Guild will hold its annual Rendezvous in the Wulff Gallery from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. All are welcome to meet the tyers and learn their craft.
Catskill Kids on the Fly
The Catskill Fly Tyers Guild is starting a Catskill Kids on the Fly chapter that will meet at the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum at 10 a.m. before the Guild’s regularly scheduled meetings.
All tying equipment and tying materials will be supplied for the sessions. All sessions are open to kids of all ages, including parents regardless of tying experience.
The inaugural meeting will take place during the Opening Day festivities at the Fly Tyers Rendezvous on April 6 at the museum.
The inaugural session will be open throughout the Rendezvous. This initiative reflects the guild’s efforts to coordinate better its activities with those of the museum.
At 1 p.m., view the trailers for the movies Chasing the Taper and Land of Little Rivers, and the full film The Lost World of Mr. Hardy.
