I’m not in New Orleans. That’s where it is all going down for the next few days. The International Fly Tackle Dealer show is in the Big Easy this year. New gear is getting talked about and shown off. Last year the big news was the NRX from G. Loomis. I haven’t heard what the buzz is about this year. Could be a $1,000 fly rod instead of just an $800 fly rod. Who knows.
Lots of people to watch down there. One you can follow is The Fiberglass Manifesto. Check your facebook and your twitter and your favorite fly blogs and you’ll likely see some cool stuff coming out.
