Demos, deals, Dennis: Expo’s coming to town
It’s like Christmas in April for fly anglers, and without the cold.
The 15th annual Western Colorado Fly Fishing Exposition includes tours, seminars, fly-tying demos, guest speakers and fly-fishing clinics and contests.
The best deals — other than the tours, seminars, listening to Jack Dennis and watching the fly tying — are the silent and live auctions during the banquet Saturday night.
Poke around, you can hook up with angling art and fly fishing gear, or maybe an overnight fly fishing trip to the Flat Tops, or a float trip on the Snake, or the Ruby, or the Green, or the Rogue or the Big Hole or the upper Colorado.
Whew. The list is long. Santa should be so generous.
