It takes a lot of help to put together one of the best fly fishing expos in the Pacific Northwest and we are always looking for volunteers.  The Western Idaho Fly Fishing Expo is 100% volunteer staffing, by individuals who have a passion for fly fishing and/or support the values and mission of Boise Valley Fly Fishers.


The annual Boise Valley Fly Fishers annual Fly Fishing Expo is back on for 2022.

January 7:  12:00 to 9:00 PM

January 8:    9:00 to 6:00 PM

EXPO IDAHO (Western Idaho Fairgrounds, Garden City)

Team leads have been assigned from the BVFF membership to oversee, coordinate, and run specific areas of the Expo to insure that we have a really enjoyable and educational experience at the Expo, while at the same time, supporting our fly fishing vendors, sponsors and the Treasure Valley Fly Fishing enthusiasts. Our Expo Volunteers are key to making all of this happen. The two-day show will require the essential support of approximately 50 plus volunteers. The Expo will not happen without volunteers!

Please consider volunteering to help out with this major event and be a part of the fun at Expo 2022.
