Bill Nelson Memorial

The McKenzie Flyfishers invite you to attend the dedication of the

Bill Nelson Memorial

11:00 a.m. Saturday, September 20, 2014 at

Hendricks Bridge Wayside Park Boat Ramp.


Bill Nelson was a driving force and the founder of the McKenzie Flyfishers. His foresight, determination, and hard work made possible the first organizational meeting for what became the unified, internationally recognized voice of flyfishing, The Federation of Flyfishers.
Truly an ambassador for flyfishing. Bill Nelson was a superb fly-fisher and innovative fly- tier. Bill loved to talk about flyfishing, he loved to share his flyfishing knowledge and experiences with anyone who would listen. He promoted flyfishing everywhere he went. Please join the McKenzie Flyfishers and Bill’s many friends to celebrate his lifetime commitment, contributions, and dedication to the sport of flyfishing.


Hendricks Bridge Wayside Park Boat Ramp is located 9 miles east of downtown Springfield on the McKenzie Highway, US 126. Take the first right after you cross the Bridge. Follow the signs to the Boat Ramp.

Lane County has waived the day use fee and parking restrictions from 9:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. for those attending.

Thanks to the Lane County Parks Department, the McKenzie Flyfishers, and contributions from all who donated so generously to make this tribute to Bill Nelson possible.
