We're So fly festival - May 2-5, 2019


First annual Fly-Fishing Festival celebrating the gorgeous rivers and streams in Bath County, Virginia.  Below is the schedule of events along with ticket links for the events that require advance sign-up.  Please feel free to email kate@gristmillsquare.com with any questions or if you are interested in becoming a sponsor or vendor.  We are also accepting donations for our Silent Auction benefiting Project Healing Waters.  

Throughout the Festival there are guided and self-guided fishing opportunities.  Some of the guided fishing requires advance sign up.  We've created events for each of the private fishing excursions that require "tickets".  A list of those events are on the Facebook page for the festival.
