The Fly the Alley fly-fishing exposition gathers fishing experts from all over the Great Lakes area for a weekend packed with the free exchange of angling knowledge. Saturday’s exposition follows a schedule of events that includes workshops, seminars, and fish look-alike contests. In between giving hands-on assistance at the catching pond, Ohio native Will Turek covers the basics of single-handed fly casting—focusing on the specific methods used to attract the area’s population of steelhead trout—in an 11 a.m. outdoor workshop. During the Wine & Fish: The Perfect Culinary Companions workshop at 2 p.m., a local executive chef discusses how to perfectly pair Ohio wines with seafood caught in its rivers, lakes, and oceans. While mixing and mingling with hordes of anglers, expo-goers can also drift between the lengthy rows of fishing-gear vendor exhibits, taking in a prismatic array of the latest lures and flies as well as other glimmering bits of tackle.
