With the announcement this week by the American Fly Fishing Trade Association (AFFTA) that it would “sponsor and/or endorse and/or ignore and/or relocate an Independent Fly Fishing show in 2010,” it came as welcome news to the industry this morning that the trade group has settled on the lobby of the Rock Springs, Wyoming, EconoLodge as the location.
Other local activities available to show attendees include cow-tipping and windmill-watching:
Much confusion had been brewing recently over where next year’s Flyfishing Retailer Show might be held, especially after an Outdoor Retailer show director sent an open invitation to all flyfishing companies, asking them to come join O. R. in Salt Lake.
However, that invitation was quickly called into question, since the author wrote that “more than 25 percent of Flyfishing Retailer companies already exhibit at Outdoor Retailer”—clearly forgetting to add a decimal point between the 2 and the 5.
See you all there!!
