Kingsley’s Adams Fly Festival is a celebration of not only the Adams Fly, made by Len Halladay and an original is housed at the Kingsley Branch Library, but a celebration of all things fly fishing. The Festival is held the first Saturday in June each year in the Village of Kingsley's Brownson Park. Festivities include fly tying demonstrations, casting instruction, river boat display, fly fishing art, fly fishing merchandise, live and silent auctions, fly history, Adams Fly swag, live music and a micro brew tent filled with Northern Michigan brews.
Be sure to join us as we share fishing stories, shop for merchandise and share in the camaraderie that is fly fishing, all the while supporting a great cause.
Proceeds of the event are contributed to the Kingsley Friends of the Library for educational, cultural and social programming.
The Adams Fly Festival is a fund raiser for the Kingsley Branch Library to provide programs at the library for all library patrons. The Kingsley Friends of the Library is the owner of an original Adams Fly created in 1922 and is on permanent display in the Library. The Adams Fly is a dry fly that is known world wide. There are craft vendors, food vendor, a beer/wine tent, as well as a silent auction and live auction, and fly fishing demonstrations. We also provide an educational component about the creator of the Adams Fly Len Halliday in a program presented in the Library Community Room.
