Denver Fly Fishing Show 2013 Day 1

The show opened Friday at 10 am with a long line waiting to get in. Soon the building was awash in people—an outstanding crowd for a Friday. My first program was a casting demo at 11:15, and the audience was large and ready to have a great time. And we did. They all participated with glee, had fun, and learned a bit about casting and mending.

In the afternoon, I gave a PowerPoint presentation on “Presentation,” spent time in the author’s booth signing books and chatting with people about a wide variety of fly fishing topics, and finished the day with a fly tying demo. It was a very solid start to the show.

Get out tomorrow if you can, it promises to be an equally fine show on Saturday
