The 2014 Fly Fishing Show in Denver has come and gone and with it was another great year. This year was pretty busy with Friday being much busier than the past years. It may have something to do with people still on vacation as the show was a bit early this year. It may have also been that there was a storm expected over the weekend and many people wanted to get there before the snow started falling. Either way, it was a great way to kick off the show.
I want to thank everyone who stopped by and thanked me for doing this blog. It certainly is nice to hear that I am helping you get better at fly tying. I really appreciate the followers that I have and it is appreciated. Thank you.
As a beginner fly tier and fly fisher, I could only imagine that one day I would be sitting at the same table sharing lunch or dinner and jokes with some of the people who were teaching me at the time through their articles and books. Phil Rowley, Rick Takahashi & Jeff Currier are the people I look up to in the industry. As time goes on, I hope I can be as helpful and gracious as they are. I thank them for offering the help and guidance they provide.
This year, I didn't get to get out and take many photos. Before I knew it, it was late Sunday afternoon and I had yet to take a photo. The following photos were taken quickly and in poor lighting. Next year, I will have to make it a point to spend more time visiting with other tiers and vendors. Hmmm. What should I tie next year?
