Fly Fishing Show gears up for 2018


SOMERSET, Pennsylvania

With Year 2018 looming on the horizon, the Fly Fishing Show® staff is determining guest speakers, show personalities, casting and fly-tying demonstrators, and all that goes into the national event.

The New Year will offer seven shows, each two or three days in length, from Denver to Atlanta to Seattle and back to Pennsylvania. Said Fly Fishing Show president and CEO, “It’s the greatest fly-fishing event in the country, impacting the most people, and bringing out the greatest array of personalities, authors and experts.”

He continued, “… Scheduling personalities is a bit of a juggling act in that some people are national figures, Gary Borger or Lefty Kreh, for example, while others have greater regional appeal such as steelhead anglers in the Seattle area, Chattahoochee River guides in Georgia or Sierra trout experts in Northern California.”

A partial list of 2018 Fly Fishing Show presentations include:

Denver, January 5, 6 and 7: George Daniel, Wendy Gunn, Simon Gawesworth, Taylor Edrington, Pat Dorsey and Landon Mayer;

Marlborough, Mass., January 19, 20 and 21: Bob Clouser, Ed Engle, John Shaner and Jeff Currier;

Edison, NJ (formerly Somerset), January 26, 27 and 28: Edison, NJ (formerly Somerset), January 26, 27 and 28: Daniel, Clouser, Tim Flagler, Jason Randall and Tom Gilmore;

Atlanta, February 2 and 3: Bruce Chard, Henry Cowan, Wendell ‘Ozzie’ Ozefovch, Blackburn and Daniel Galhardo;
