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

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.
