The biggest fly fishing show in the world is coming up this weekend in Somerset, NJ. We've been busy all week updating power point presentations for Barry. He's doing Dry Fly Strategies II on Friday and Tactics for Catching Big Trout on Saturday. Cathy's putting the finishing touches on her presentation at the Women's Showcase (not for women only) on understanding rod actions, fly reels, lines & leaders. Her fly lines are cleaned for the casting demonstrations at the pool and Barry's fly tying kit is packed. I think they are about ready to go.
This is the 24th year for the Somerset Show and it's been a huge success from the very first year. Hundreds of booths representing manufacturers, shops, destinations, publishers, and fly tyers lining the outer edges of the convention hall. The weather forecast sounds good for traveling so please stop by the Sage or Frontiers booth and say hi to Barry and Cathy. (They will be at the show on Friday & Saturday only, Sunday they leave for New Zealand).
The show is at the Garden State Exhibit Center and the hours are Friday 9 - 6, Saturday 8:30 - 6 and Sunday 9 - 4:30. Check the show web site for a complete list of presentations and directions to the show.
Hope to see you there!
