2011 Fly Show Orlando, Fl


I had some people ask… YES it is completely open to the public.


Last year I went to this event in Orlando. I must say it was pretty nice to see all the latest greatest from the manufactures there. Lots of new fly rods and reels to cast out in the casting pond. Tons of tying materials as well.

If you’re looking to get into fly fishing or just a gadget crazy guy like me this is the next best thing to going to the New Orleans fly show.

Flip Pallot and Chico is even going to be there.

$10.00 you can’t beat it




Florida Fly Fishing EXPO

Never picked up a rod? Come to the Worldgate Resort in Kissimmee October 21-22 and see what all the fuss is about! Meet face to face with Legends Flip Pallot, Chico Fernandez, Dave and Emily Whitlock at their special booth with other renowned educators giving many FREE seminars. Only $10 per day gains
admission with kids under 16 free!

Not just for cold water streams “up north” anymore, the advancement in gear, lines, flies and technique have brought this great sport to salt water in a big way. Are you missing something sitting at home?

Need to brush up on your casting? Dust off that rod in the attic and bring it to the folks dedicated to teach and educate you regardless of age or sex (yes bring your spouse and kids). The Federation of Fly Fishers, based in Livingston Mt., has for 45 years promoted fly-fishing wordwide through almost 300 clubs with 16 in Florida alone. There is one near you. More specific detail can be found at www.FFF-florida.org about the EXPO, show and area fly fishing clubs.
