Yesterday I attended Angler's Workshop as a sponsor. Craig from Fly Fishing Chronicles puts together this event ever other year, and even though it was only the second year, he did a great job once again. It's event devoted to all aspects of fly fishing. There is a full schedule of seminars which included such topics as fly tying, knots, destination fishing, and women in the sport. There were plenty of raffles to get in on, which had some really great prizes donated by many of the sponsors that were on hand, and some that weren't able to attend. At the end of the day I got a chance to run a casting competition...that was a first for me. Even though the doors only officially opened at 8:45am for the public to come in, I was having a great time by 8:56am.
As a sponsor I got some table space and was able to show off some poppers I'm working on, sell a few, and tell a lot of people about the Guys, Flies & Pies party coming up in 2 weeks. I really enjoy this kind of stuff...tying flies, talking fishing, and meeting great people.

Keep in mind, it's because of our sponsors that our event is able to be so awesome, so when you're looking to buy, have a look at them and let them know that GFP sent you.
I'm looking forward to Angler's Workshop 2014...2 years will go by fast, but maybe not fast enough.
See you all in 13 days for Guys, Flies & Pies!
