Writers on the Fly is going on the road, again! The 2019 Cascadia Tour is set to visit 4 cities in Oregon and Washington from January 30-February 2, 2019. Each reading will feature 4-5 writers, and exhibit the work of some of fly fishing’s finest artists, curated by Copi Vojta of The Flyfish Journal.
