Join us for the premier flats fishing event in the world! In BTT's sixth foray into this gathering, things have continued to get bigger and better. In addition to all of the things that they have brought you in previous years, they are also offering BTT's first "Flats Expo" for those who wish to see some of the newest innovations on the commercial side of the sport.

As always, BTT will continue to have the top scientists in the flats world share their latest results on why the fish do what they do. Also top anglers and guides share their time-tested techniques for catching these iconic gamefish of the flats. Join us for two full days of fascinating presentations by the world's top tarpon, bonefish, and permit biologists mixed with enjoyable fishing and casting clinics taught by some of the world's top anglers and instructors including HB Pro Staff member, Andy Mill.

The main scientific sessions will take place in a state of the art auditorium at the Bonaventure Resort. These sessions will provide a venue for presentations and Q&A about the latest research of bonefish, tarpon, permit, and the fisheries. Various initiative sessions will take place to update anglers on BTT's many different projects. These sessions will include presentations specific to the initiatives followed by discussion.

Expert panel discussions provide a venue for experts to share their fishing strategies with attendees, share their thoughts about the state of the fishery, and answer questions from audience members. The "Flats Expo" will house tables for invited fly tiers and for sponsors. These tables will be present all day Friday, and Saturday through mid afternoon. There will be multiple fishing-related clinics Friday and Saturday as well.
