Default Re: Fly Fishing Film Tour...Chicago show!

Another quick update...

The show is just over three weeks away and the swag pile just got a BIG boost.

Scientific Anglers was kind enough to drop probably 1K worth of lines and fly boxes for the event. Shark Skin, GPX, Mastery Series, there is no shortage of casting goodness in that pile.

Abel Reels was also VERY generous as was Flying Pig Fly Rods...hint hint.
There is also a complete Orvis rod/reel/line set up to win (Helios/Hydros)

Also received some great stuff from The Old AuSable Fly shop in Michigan...and there is still more stuff from various other companies on the way including another care package from Orvis corporate. I suspect there will be no shortage of smiles on a lot of peoples faces as they leave the show May 1st.

Also, rumor has it there is a shortage this year of the "Stone Fly" magazine which usually gets handed out to all who walk through the door. They sent 200 last year and every one of them got scooped up, this year there is only 150 (and there is no more) so with an expected crowd of 200 (based on last years attendence) it's first come first serve...so fyi.

Still tickets available but I suspect that will start to change in the next couple weeks as the show draws closer.
