    Default Denver Fly Fishing Show

    My wife and I just returned from attending the Denver Fly Fishing Show. As a first time visitor I would give the show an “A” and downtown Denver a “B”. I thought the number and variety of vendors at the Denver Mart was excellent. The fly tying demonstrations and the casting demonstrations were also excellent. I would rate Gary Borger as the best casting teacher, although others were very good as well. The show also had many destination oriented presentations which, understandably, painted a rather rosy picture of each river’s quality and quantity of fishing. Many boats at the show too. I was very close to pulling the trigger on Dave Scadden’s two person Dragon Fly model ($2,500) But ultimately decided to hold off.
    We stayed downtown at the Crawford Hotel at Union Station. If you like bars and restaurants, downtown Denver has lots of them. In summary, we enjoyed the show and am glad we went. Staying downtown is expensive though.

    I've went a couple times when I lived down there, it's been quite a while though. Glad to hear you had a good time.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    Gary taught me to cast so he's the only instructor I have known. Jason isn't too bad either. :^))
