Anybody headed to (or ever attended) the Fly Fishing Show East being held next month in Charlotte? I've never been, thought I might give it a go and see what it's all about.

Was there a couple years back. Mtnman and I plan on attending on Saturday (if not able to that day, then we'll be there on Sunday). There's a lot of sellers there, but don't expect to find lots of outstanding deals on stuff (it may be different now). But on the flip side, you'll see lots of equipment there, some of it hard to find. There were lots of useful seminars, if I remember correctly and this year looks to be no different.

Visit the above site and on the left is a link to expected "Programs & Classes".

Does anyone else plan on going?

yeah, that's what I kinda figured on. Deals never show up at these type things but you can checkout tons of stuff sometimes I only find online...at least I hope. Also I'm hoping to browse a few pontoons in person...about to buy one soon!

I've attended the last few years. In addition to the other post I go for the fly tying folks there too. Its up close and you can ask questions or pickup on tips that will really help you tie. Dick Talleur, Dave Brandt(Catskill style flies) as well as some saltwate tiers are there. You can pickup a lot of good info.

Dave Brandt is a fabulous guy! Every one of the three Joan Wulff classes I took, he was an instructor. If you get a chance to meet him and see his flies...GO! His is made of win! :biggrin:

Tell him the "casting nazi" said hello! ;)
