I attended this year’s IFTD in New Orleans with Royce Klingler and Marc Crapo. It was an awesome event. The city of New Orleans is an unbelievable city, especially the FOOD! There was tons of sweet Dealers, new gear, and some great clips of upcoming fly fishing movies, namely the Costa Rica Challenge.
We were promoting the upcoming showing of the Costa Rica Challenge that will air on the WFN in October and networking with the great Dealers.
Next year the International Fly Tackle Dealer show is in Reno
I took quite a few pics and some uncut harmonica playing vids!
Rather than bore you with details, I will tell the story through the pics.
