Go fly fishing or to fly show?

Hmm. Now that long-range forecasts make the weekend look promising for winter trout, I can't make up my mind whether to go fly fishing or go to the flyshow with the free time I have. On one hand, we're in this presumably to max. out our time on the water; on the other, the show is a fun thing to go to, and i gotta catch up with Ann.

So, if you had a limited amount of time, and weather looked good for trouting, would you go fly fishing or to the fly fishing show?

Would it be a bad thing...

...to arrive at the show wearing wet waders?!

An early trout sortie followed by a Marlboro appearance soundz like a full day onthewater to me!

re: options

Thats a no brainer as far as I am concerned. You fish when you have the chance.

Yeah, seriously. That's not even a choice!

I would go fishing. The show will be the same old like it always is. The only reason to go now is to see friends. FishHawk

Dear Josco,

Every time I go to one of the better shows I make it a point to learn something. Even if it is as simple as how to make a certain part of a fly. This year in Marlboro, I am going to figure out how to make the wings on traditional spey flies lay so low. I am hoping that one of the pros can help.

I also meet up with friends and contacts. The event will take all of three to four hours. I will have a few laughs, see some new products, speek to the officials representing Saumon Quebec and go home.

Therefore, my suggestion to someone who does not want to miss a day on the water is to do both. Get to the show first thing at opening and get to the river as the afternoon warms.

Some one you meet at the show could enhance your fishing for life.

C.R.O.
