Tim Brookens and I attended the Fly Fishing Show in Lancaster, PA today. This was a great show which included exhibitors, seminars, and casting demonstrations. The highlight of the day for me was attending Lefty Kreh’s casting demonstration. Lefty is world famous and at 88 years old casts 70 feet with no effort. His technique is no less than perfect. We also attended Lefty’s seminar on taking better pictures and picked up some useful tips.
Mike Heck, local Orvis guide was among the fly tiers and my favorite fly shop – TCO was among the exhibitors (www.tcoflyfishing.com). We also got input from exhibitors on Young Woman’s creek in PA, the South Holston in TN (www.southholstonriverlodge.com) and fishing wild brook streams and spring creeks in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley (firstname.lastname@example.org) (Harrisonburg, VA).
Ofcourse, you cannot go to an event like this without spending some money on “stuff”. Lucky for us the wives came along and spent more than us shopping – not at the Fly Show! Now, we just need the weather to warm up so we can put our “stuff” to work.
