HFFA Annual Meeting & Show

The Hawkeye Flying Association's Annual Meeting & Show is typically held in the early spring. In addition to presentations, there are vendors, fly tying presentations and demonstrations, and guides. A live auction, silent auction, and raffles help raise funds for Iowa stream conservation work.

Iowa State Fair Fly Tying Competition

The Hawkeye Fly Fishing Association sponsors the Fly Tying competition at the Iowa State Fair.  The competition is supported by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and the Iowa State Fair.  The goal is to provide an opportunity for the public to view the art of fly tying and to promote fly fishing in Iowa.
