About Spring Fling

The Cornhusker Fly Fishers Spring fling is an event designed kick off the start of the fishing for the year. This event brings together the members of the club for a great day of fly tying seminars, raffles, silent auction items, and of course, food!

Because of the event's popularity, we have needed to find a large enough location comfortable and large enough to accommodate everyone. This year, Spring Fling will now be held at Eugene T. Mahoney State Park. Lunch/drinks are included in your ticket price and is also accompanied by doughnuts, coffee in the morning and pie for desert. Nebraska State Park Entry Permit Not included in Ticket.
