We’re excited to announce the 2023 Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo to be held at Hamline University in Saint Paul, MN. We’re looking forward to being back at Hamline University’s excellent amenities to offer the best possible event for exhibitors, speakers, attendees and the fly fishing community as a whole. MNTU will retain an emphasis on a strong diversity of fly fishing activities represented including warm water and salt water. We have many new concepts we will be integrating into the expo and welcome all exhibitor input. We hope to include many of your ideas and concepts in the new expo.
