FFF Gulf Coast Expo (Texas)

April 9 & 10, 2010; New Braunfels, Texas. It was hard to gauge the overall turnout at this event. I just didn’t see the “standing room only” crowd I had expected. However, the vendors I knew, including Austin Canoe & Kayak, did pretty good moving product. Everything was discounted to some degree. I would venture to say that the economy is still lacking confidence. I was just happy to see all the familiar faces that make up the central Texas fly fishing community. (From top to bottom) Our friend Clint Jackson gave fly tying instruction, Epic Angling and Adventure’s booth drew a good crowd, and we spent a good amount of time with the guys from TFO. I convinced myself that the Finesse series 6wt would make a good light-saltwater rod. We’ll see when I build one up.
