FREEPORT, Maine—Some of the biggest names in fishing will be at L.L.Bean on March 18-20 for L.L.Bean’s annual Spring Fishing Weekend. Lefty Kreh, Dave Whitlock, Emily Whitlock, Tim Rajeff, Dave Klausmeyer and others will be available at the store from 10am to 4pm Saturday and Sunday to visit with customers, share stories, sign autographs, books and more. And new this year, L.L.Bean will be showing the best short fly-fishing films from The Drake Magazine’s renowned Fly-Fishing Film Awards, which are shown to audiences exclusively at the International Fly Tackle Dealer Show each year in Denver.  
 
“We have put together an incredible menu of activities,” said Mac McKeever, senior public relations representative. “Regardless of your level of skill or interest, whether you’re young, old, a beginner or an expert, we have a whole host of activities, with plenty of great things to do for families and kids, and best of all, it’s free. There’s definitely something for everyone.”
 
Featured celebrity fly tyers include David Klausmeyer, Don Bastian and Sam Kenney, who at only 12 years old has already become a renowned tyer. Other weekend highlights include free fly-casting lessons, kids’ activities, and a variety of demonstrations, clinics and seminars including presentations by the Maine Professional Guide Association, as well as several L.L.Bean experts.
 
Biologists from the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife will also be conducting a special presentation on a very unique brook trout project they have been working on. 
 
From March 18 through 20, special promotions include 20 percent off all Bean Brand fishing gear and apparel and 20% off all flies. And as a way to mitigate the transmission of invasive aquatic species, from March 18 through 20, customers who trade in their felt-soled wading boots will get an additional 10% off Bean Brand rubber-soled wading boots at the store. All event activities are free. For more information, visit www.llbean.com/freeport, or call 800-559-0747, ext. 37222.
