IFTD recap…

Well another IFTD is in the bag.  Thought i’d give you a short recap and show you a few new products and old friends. Over 250 New Products were shown at the Showcase which was sponsored by Angling Trade Magazine!

New products of note include these cool little flies that look super realistic!

Also cool were the sculpin heads by Fish Skulls and completed flies by the same!

Tubeology introduced a rally cool tube fly tying and interchange system .  I had a nice chat with Andy Kitchener about the neat different flies you can have in this one small box!

TFO had a great booth set up right by a casting pond and was quite busy with new dealers and products.  The new BVK rods are amazing!

One of the best reasons to go to IFTD is to see some folks you only run into at the show.  The who’s who of Fly Fishing are on hand and it is fun to see these guys and watch them cast a bit at the ponds around the show floor.

Flip Pallot and I got to visit a bit and talk about his trip West after the show.


Chico Fernandez stops by the Hobie booth and gets some directions.  I watched Chico cast for a while at a pond.  Tight little loops and very beautiful!!!

Had a nice long talk about what’s coming up for TFO with long time friend Gary Loomis.  He is really having fun with the new designs for TFO’s conventional and spinning rods!!!

As always New Orleans serves up a good time, a great meal with friends and a walk in the French Quarter will bear that out!
