Western Canadian Fly Fishing Exposition report

Made it home safely after the Western Canadian Fly Fishing Exposition and I have to say it is nice to have everything back to normal here in Whistler. The Calgary show was great though attendance seemed a little bit down from previous years. Even still the single hand and speycasting demos were well attended as were the various seminars taking place over the weekend. Here is a photo Pat snapped from my speycasting demo on Saturday morning trying to make the most out of the new improved larger casting pond that show organizers added this year.

The Whistler Flyfishing booth stayed busy throughout the weekend with Whistler Flyfishing Steelhead guides Pat Beahen and Scott Baker working hard to keep things in order. Local celebrity and Loop tackle pro staff member Maxwell Robinson spent the whole weekend in the booth showing off the new Loop gear and talking shop.Here is the Whistler Flyfishing booth crew.

Scott Baker somehow managed the win in the casting contest and attracted the attention of the local media for an impromptu photo shoot

All in all it was a great show and we all look forward to doing it again next year.
