Denver Consumer Shows Ready for Launch

January 4, 2012 By: Marshall Cutchin

The International Sportsmen’s Exposition starts tomorrow at Denver’s Colorado Convention Center, and the Fly Fishing Show begins Friday at the Denver Merchandise Mart.  Forecast highs in the 50s and 60s and sunny weather mean easy travel over the next two days, making hitting both shows a snap.  Scott Willoughby reports in the Denver Post that “the world’s ‘only’ fly-fishing comedians,” Scott Thompson and Dave Shirley, will present “Fly Fishing Sucks,” at the ISE on Friday at 6 p.m.  The Fly Fishing Show stays a bit more serious, offering the chance to cast antique bamboo rods and attend several instructional events.
