Great Waters Fly Expo

6 posts in this topic

Anyone plan on going? I'm just starting to really get into fly fishing, and was wondering if you guys have been and what you think. I guess it's this weekend in Bloomington. I just bought a book by Lefty Kreh weekend and thought it was pretty cool that he was going to be there. This might be a fun weekend with the Sprotsman's Show and the Fly Fishing show happening!

It's "our" event - the one show dedicated to all aspects of fly angling. You can schmooze with suppliers, look at just about every piece of equipment on the market, try out rods, watch terrific fly tying demonstrations, hunt down some bargains, learn about conservation issues and attend some terrific seminars and, perhaps most importantly, hang out with other members of the tribe. It's a great place to spend an early spring weekend.

I'm going for the live bug/living stream exhibit.

It sounds like a Red Light District for bug porn addicts (like myself). blush.gif

I wish I could go, but it falls on Brule opener. I have some good friends that will be at the superior fly company booth and I hate to miss it, but that's how it goes.

I really wanted to meet the guys from the trout bums videos as well. frown.gif

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
