Hosted in 7 different cities around the country, the annual Fly Fishing Show is an expo/gathering of some great companies, guides, authors, fly tiers, other personalities (is that even a thing in fly fishing?!), and MORE. This year, I decided to FINALLY attend - with the whole family.
The fly fishing “industry” is growing. More women are fishing, more women-owned companies are popping up, more kids have rods in hand and there are even more guys on the water. This is SUCH a fun time to have a passion for fly fishing.
We arrived at the event just before the entrance line got crazy and as we entered the Pavillion, I was immediately struck by how many other women were walking around And the number of families in attendance. As a gal that loves to get my kids on the water, it built my stoke, to say the least!
The day was filled with seeing old friends, making new connections and pining for more time on the water. Soon enough, I told myself...soon enough.
