Like fishing for compliments, fishing for fish requires the right bait, the right line, and a friend who is willing to exaggerate. Reel it in with today’s Groupon to the Fly the Alley Expo, held at The Lodge & Conference Center at Geneva-on-the-Lake on Saturday, November 12, 2011 at 9:30 a.m.–5 p.m. Choose between the following options:
- For $7, you get a one-day pass to the expo (a $15 value).
- For $14, you get two one-day passes to the expo (a $30 value).<p>
Supplying attendees with a day’s worth of hands-on workshops, equipment exhibits, and seminars from seasoned guides, the Fly the Alley Expo explores every aspect of fly fishing for steelhead trout in teeming Lake Erie tributaries. In addition to mastering fly fishing techniques, fisherpeople can learn how to cook their scaly catch from a master chef, or explore locally produced wines to find the best pairing with the area’s freshwater fish. Meanwhile, wall-to-wall vendors show off the latest rods, reels, and singing wall-mounted sea basses, and a quartet of expert anglers is on hand throughout the day to answer questions, help tie flies, and make fish lips demonstrations at land-based animals.
