Fly Fishing's High Noon in Denver

We’re less than a month away now from the opening of simultaneous fly fishing shows for consumers in Denver, and apparently tempers are not cooling. Chuck Furimsky, owner of the established event, The Fly Fishing Show, is prepared to lose money for a couple of years to fend of the predations of the new AFFTA show, according to today’s piece by Ed Dentry. The only thing that is pretty clear is that consumers won’t be gaining much in the short term, since divided loyalties and business connections will separate many of the top names. “Some celebrities are staying with the old show; others willingly have gone over to the far side. Among the notables, for example, anglers will find Lefty Kreh at the convention center, but Dave Whitlock at the Merchandise Mart.” In the Rocky Mountain News.
