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

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
