I didn’t go to the IFTD show this year. Hard to break away when the day job is kicking like it is. I made it to one of the shows a few years back and it was a good time.
Some other bloggers did go and they posted some write-ups you can check out.
Gink and Gasoline had a write up. Written by Johnny Spillane, no less.
Hatch Magazine has a write up as well.
Sage’s SALT rod won best in show. That’s a rod I haven’t cast, but might like to.
Nautilus picked up honors for their reels for both salt and fresh water. The Silver King Black is the saltwater reel.
RIO got the nod for top saltwater fly line with a line for Permit. If permit weren’t such jerks, I might be interested in this line.
Another year, another lineup of good stuff. Of course, the old stuff wasn’t so bad either.
