Pete Kutzer making it look effortless as always!

Thomas & Thomas, The Fly Fishing Show Atlanta 2018

Always good to see the folks from Thomas & Thomas at the shows! Check TheSuburbanAngler.com archives for my thoughts on the Solar rod they let me borrow. Loved casting that rod!!

Unicoi Outfitters, The Fly Fishing Show Atlanta 2018

I don't ever fish anywhere near Helen, GA without stopping in and talking to the guys at Unicoi Outfitters! The new booth sign looks great!

Jonathan from Fly Skinz, The Fly Fishing Show Atlanta 2018

Jonathan at Fly Skinz was kind enough to demonstrate tying a floating crab fly using his Exo Skin and Crab Bits materials. A quick tie and an awesome looking pattern. I can't wait to tie a bunch when I get home!!!

Great live entertainment before the IF4 show starts!

Big River Camps, The Fly Fishing Show Atlanta 2018

There is something about fishing in Labrador that has long held my interest. Big River Camps has excellent Atlantic Salmon and Sea-Run Brook Trout fishing at their doorstep!! Anybody interested in going with me?

George Daniel's casting demo, The Fly FIshing Show Atlanta 2018

Caught the tail end of George Daniel's casting demo. You know it's serious when the presenter kicks off his shoes and gets in the casting pond!!!

Tenkara USA, The Fly Fishing Show Atlanta 2018

If you remember the Suburban Angler Giveaway last year, the folks from Tenkara USA were kind enough to donate one of their rod packages. So glad that today I had the opportunity to thank Daniel in person! Their podcast released an episode last night all about Tenkara fishing for panfish with @panfish_on_the_fly! I'll be listening to that on the drive back to Florida!!

Dave Whitlock, The Fly Fishing Show Atlanta 2018

Sitting in on a fly tying presentation from one of my favorite fly tyers, authors and wildlife artists, Dave Whitlock. He's explaining his 3 Emerger System while tying the 3 caddis emerger patterns he likes to use.

Rise Fishing Co, The Fly Fishing Show Atlanta 2018

Rise Fishing Co has a booth at the Atlanta Fly Fishing Show. A direct to consumer model helps to keep prices down on some feature packed fly rods!

Alpine Leisure Co., The Fly Fishing Show Atlanta 2018

Picked up a cool new reel pouch from @alpineleisureco. I tend to prefer anything with a belt loop and these reel pouches double as a rod holder when on the water. Check them out, lots of neat stuff!

River Through Atlanta, The Fly Fishing Show Atlanta 2018

Hanging out with the fly tiers at the River Through Atlanta, the premier guide service for the Chattahoochee River!!

NorVise Rotary Fly Tying System, The Fly Fishing Show Atlanta 2018

Just watched a demonstration of the NorVise rotary fly tying system by Tim and Tyler O'Neill. Really a unique tying system that I hope to try soon!
