What is EyeFlyFish and who are the Optometric Fly Fishers?
EyeFlyFish is the result of an idea to create a program that combines the need for high quality optometric continuing education and the love of fly fishing. Founded in 1991 by optometrists and fly fishing friends Mark Boas and Charlie Griffen, the idea came to fruition with the first EyeFlyFish program held at Allenberry Resort on the famous Yellow Breeches in Boiling Springs, PA. After a successful initial program, featuring noted fly fishing authors Joe Humphrey, Ed Koch and Ed Shenk, as well as a follow-up program in 1993, the program was put on hold in order to raise our families and grow our practices.
Fast forward 25 years later
In 2014 we reactivated the program in order to provide our fellow optometrists with the opportunity to receive quality continuing education and outstanding fly fishing instruction. Recent programs have been held at the Rocky Mountain Conference Center in Estes Park, CO, the Allenberry Resort in Boiling Springs, PA, and the Flying Saddle Resort in Alpine, WY.
Mark decided to take a year off from planning EyeFlyFish 2018.
Fortunately, Wyoming optometrist and professional fly fishing guide NateEdwards responded to my request to help plan this year's event. Those who attended EyeFlyFish 2017 received a dozen flies tied by Nate and can attest to his skill as a fly tier.
Join Nate and me in Cody, WY at Buffalo Bill Village Resort, site of this
year's Northern Rockies Optometric Conference
and only minutes from Yellowstone National Park.
The nearby Shoshone, Clark's Fork and Greybull rivers are teaming with wild rainbow, brown and yellowstone cutthroat trout just waiting to be caught!
