IFTD side of things

It took some doing, but I finally managed to find the IFTD side of things. I walked through and voted in the New Product Showcase (no photos allowed), but, let me tell you, there are some really awesome new products coming out!!!

Made it!

Made it to the convention center and completed registration! Excited for this year's show, but now I sit and wait until the New Product Showcase reception opens!

Today is the last day!

Today is the last day! IFTD and ICAST 2018 starts tomorrow with ICAST On The Water and the New Product Showcases!! While all of the exhibitors prepare their booths, I thought I'd prepare by exercising my casting shoulder and hounding some little sunfish!

The IFTD and ICAST 2018 Throwback Countdown only 3 days left!!!

The IFTD and ICAST 2018 Throwback Countdown went off the rails a bit, but we're down to only 3 days left!!! At last year's IFTD Show I met the folks from Fair Flies and was introduced to their composite brushes. I love these things! You wouldn't believe how many different materials they pack into them! And, the folks behind Fair Flies are working hard to make a difference in the world! Look them up, read their story and tie up some Fair Flies!!

15 days to go: Taylor Revolution reels!

With 15 days to go until IFTD and ICAST 2018, here's a lineup of Taylor Revolution reels! Have you seen the wild annodizing they've been doing lately? Really awesome stuff! And, check out my First Cast video on The Suburban Angler YouTube channel for my thoughts on an early Taylor Type 1 reel. I'm looking forward to seeing what they have in store for IFTD 2018!!

I'm still counting down to IFTD and ICAST 2018

I think I might've missed a couple days, but I'm still counting down to IFTD and ICAST 2018. For day 17, this is a hybrid kayak from the folks at Diablo Paddlesports! So may features on these awesome boats were built with flyfishers in mind. Love how clean you can get that deck!!
