SOMERSET, Penn. – The 30 th annual International Fly Tying Symposium, scheduled for Nov. 21-22, has been postponed for a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, announced founder and director Chuck Furimsky.
In a letter to scheduled fly tiers, vendors and attendees, Furimsky wrote, in part, “Postponement of Symposium 2020 was not an easy decision. But it was a decision that had to be made. I don’t want to see any of us take the chance of getting a fatal virus. It’s just not worth the gamble.”
