- February 7th, 2015, show runs from 9am-4pm, at the Oasis Conference Center in Loveland, Ohio.
- Admission is free for Scouts in uniform.
- All Scouts should bring a completed Fly Fishing Merit Badge worksheet, a blue Merit Badge Application card, and a pair of eyeglasses or sunglasses.

For those of you who do not wish to work on the Fly Fishing Merit Badge, you are also invited to attend the Fly Show to learn about the sport.Last Updated on Friday, 21 November 2014 20:29

Hike to the site where Scouting REALLY began...
A FREE family friendly event!

Our hike will take you through 3 cities in 2 states and across 3 historic bridges over 2 major rivers! Enjoy the scenic beauty of the Ohio River from the Roebling Bridge, Sawyer Point and Yeatman's Cove as you learn about the deep, rich history of our community.
