Is this open to the public, or dealer only?
Public. I have no experience at this new venue but when it was held at the merchanidise mart it became an unbearable zoo with little to nothing worth going for over the years. It became a massive disappointment because I used to look forward to the show every year.

Wow. I wasn't planning on going but that's alot of money for a cot and a pot. February is about the worst time of year for me to travel across the state.

Wow, nothing in the Midwest at all. Nothing at all in the 1700 miles between Lancaster and Denver. That sucks. I guess nobody fly fishes between those points. :rolleyes:

I only go to see my friends who work the shows or if I’m doing a seminar but it will be a slap in the face to go to a post Covid show and it’s business as usual. Same vendors with the same kiosks.:LOL:

Edit: After talking with a fly fishing friend he had a good point. For the most part these shows are a lot more entertaining for the newer fly anglers.
For us folks who have been at it for a while it's a tough act to follow once you have been to a few shows or participated in them.

One of the first shows I ever went to i learned a lot. It was the first time seeing a tying demo and as a DIY tier I was doing a lot of the stuff the hard way. The one thing that is a bit of a disappointment is when the major rod manufactures are a no show. One of the appeals of a show is when you can cast lots of different rods all under one roof. I get it though it can be costly to attend all the shows if you are a rod manufacturer.
