Is it just me, or could you take that list of guest speakers and transpose it with a Fly Fishing Show lineup from 20 years ago and see mostly the same names?
 
Heck of a show. The celebrity tiers were fantastic. I highly recommend following them on Instagram. There’s a better than average chance a Scott Tidal 8wt is in my future.

Got to spend some time with Enrico Puglisi. Super cool guy. He “sold” me the light he was tying with and autographed it. I also got to meet Tradd Little, Jonathan Kiley, and a few other world class tiers. Y’all do yourselves a favor and go next time.

First one I have been to- really enjoyed it and .50-$1.00 flies and streamers fits my budget. The Film Festival was incredible. The effort some folks put in to get those shots, not to mention the time and resources to pull it off, is incredible. It's all I can do to GoPro a release of a tired stocker- lol.
