Any of you thinking about going to the show Feb 21 - 23, at the National Sports Center in Blaine?

I haven't made it in a few years, but always seems to be some good info on fly fishing! Lots of opportunities to learn to tie some new flies, buy tons of fly tying supplies, or the latest gear. Have not seen the list of presenters yet for this year, but usually there are some pretty good experts there!

did anyone make it this year? I could have only gone on Friday but due to the crappy weather I was stuck in Virginia trying to shovel out from another 12" of the white stuff!

Was there Friday evening doing tying demo's. Things were quite slow due to the crappy roads we had that weekend. Was able to spend a bit of time catching up with several guys that I only get to a few times a year.
There was a decent number of vendors there many of the usual suspects plus a few fresh faces. I think they really need to work on the line up of speakers for future shows. You can only listen to the same local guys present so many times.

I wish I could have made it! Years ago, I exhibited there (when I was still in outfitting). Had a blast, love going back and seeing old friends and making new ones. Hopefully I will be back next year.
