Fly Fishing Show Lancaster PA 2016

The Fly Fishing Show at Lancaster PA opened today(3-5-16) with a strong crowd that only got stronger during the day. I offer a casting class in the morning, followed Nya stint in the Author’s Booth, a casting demo, and a Power Point program on The Angler as Predator. Great day. Lefty Kreh and Joe Humphries […]

Fly Fishing Show Pleasanton Day 3

Another lovely day in California. The day started with a Bible study at 8am and progressed swiftly into a fly casting class, followed almost immediately by a PowerPoint Presentation on Nymphing, then a casting demo, and a book signing session. I had a break over the lunch hour and could spend some time listening to […]

Fly Fishing Show, Pleasanton Day 1

The Show opened today (Friday 2/26/16) with the roar of the crowd. When the din of the crowd exceeds discussion at even a slightly elevated auditory level, then you know that it’s a good one. And roar they did. I did a casting demo, book signing, fly tying demo, and a Power Point presentation on […]

Pleasanton Fly Fishing show 2016

Whew, We have been house hunting in the Vancouver, WA, area and not been successful to this point. But that’s another story. The Fly Fishing Show at Pleasanton is coming up fast, and it seems that the weather will cooperate and the show will go on. I’m excited about this year’s Show because it will be […]

Somerset Fly Fishing Show 2016

This year’s Show in Somerset missed the big snowfall by a week. I was not the only one glad for the “near miss.” Friday’s show opened with a bang; the crowd was very good. Plenty of people in attendance, plenty of “fishing speak” all over the place, and great attendance at all the talks. Saturday […]

Western Canadian Fly Fishing Expo 2016

Last weekend (Jan. 16, 17) was the Western Canadian Fly Fishing Expo in Calgary. The weather was classic winter Calgary, cold and blustery. The day I left, a Chinook Wind was headed in to warm things a bit. The show however, was warm and toasty and busy. Plenty of things to see and do. I […]

Denver Fly Fishing Show 2016, Day 2,3

Whew, those two days blasted by. Saturday morning from 8:30 to 11:00, I taught a casting class and then tore off to have a stint at the Author’s Booth, give a casting Demo, and a Power Point presentation on Fishing the Big Fish Flies. I used the new Hardy Zephrus rod, 9 foot 6 weight […]

Denver Fly Fishing Show, Day 1

The Show Season has started. Day One was a bit of getting back in the saddle, but that was over quickly. My first event of the day was a Casting Demo. I used the new Hardy Wraith, 9 foot, 5-weight with a fluorescent orange, long head, 6wt line made for me by Rio. It casts […]

Casting Classes

The Fly Fishing Shows are a great place to get half-day casting classes at an exceptionally good price. I offer them as space allows at the shows I attend. This year I will be at Denver, Somerset, Pleasanton, and Lancaster. The casting classes are always fun, and everyone comes away with some new understandings and […]

2015 International Fly Tying Symposium One Eye

This year’s symposium was well attended and featured a number of very interesting and fun events—including a Polka on the accordion by Chuck Furimsky, founder and manager of the event. He’s actually quite good, but prefers fly fishing and fly tying to performing in a Polka Band. Perhaps the most unusual event, however, was the […]
