Greater Cincinnati Fly Fishing Show

Thursday, February 7th, 2013

Steve and I headed down to Cincinnati last weekend to the Greater Cincinnati Fly Fishing Show that was hosted by the Buckeye United Fly Fishers.  Great show as always with many of our friends in attendance, including Ethan from SmithFly and Dave from River Traditions.  Dave was even nice enough to hook me up with a personalized Buck knife.  If your interested, Dave can get one personalized for you at a very reasonable $25.

Going South- Kentuckiana Fly Fishing Show and Greater Cincinnati Fly Fishing Show

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

With the PM River in Walhalla looking like the picture below it is great timing to hit the road in a southerly direction.  I’ll be heading to Louisville this weekend for the Kentuckiana Fly Fishing Show, where I’ll be giving a seminar in the morning on Lake Michigan flats fishing and another in the afternoon on streamer fishing for steelhead.  The Kentuckiana show is Saturday, January 26th at the Fern Valley Hotel, 2715 Fern Valley Road, Louisville KY and runs from 9-5.

The following weekend Steve and I will be at the Greater Cincinnati Fly Fishing Show where I’ll be talking about steelhead and streamers.  The Cincinnati show is Saturday, February 2nd at the Oasis Conference Center, 902 Loveland-Miamiville Road, Loveland OH and runs from 9-4.

I’ve been to both shows in the past and they are always top notch.  Hope to see you there.
