LIVINGSTON MANOR -- Fly fishing is a form of angling that dates back centuries and is considered by many fly fishermen to be more than just fishing. It's considered to be a form of art, from the way the rod is perfectly handcrafted to the way in which the line is cast.

The Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum's annual Summerfest is where this art form can be best understood and shared.

From the moment you cross the bridge and walk out onto the field toward the pavilion, it's clear that fly fishing is a living, breathing passion for many, not just here near the river, but for people far and wide and out of state. And this year it promised to be bigger and better than ever with surprises in store.

With an Angler's Market with wonderful finds about angling, arts, crafts and lifestyle, casting competitions, casting lessons by Dette Flies, and fly tying with the Catskill Fly Tyers Guild, a cookout with raffles, and a silent auction how could it not be enjoyed by all?

Beginning on Saturday at 9 a.m. and closing Sunday evening, the weekend was one for the books.
