All right this is long over due so I’ll be brief.
Back on the fifth of March I made a visit to The Philadelphia Fly Fishing Show at the Valley Forge Convention Center in Valley Forge Pennsylvania. While a lot of the old timers there said “Somerset’s bigger”, I was blown away by the amount of knowledge, gear, and raw talent at this show. (I’ll also be checking out the Somerset show next year)
I spent a lot of time watching fly tying demos, seminars, and even a few casting demos. While I could easily write four posts on the topic I’m going to scrap my original plans and hook you guys up with the good stuff.
Here are the best pictures from the show, enjoy!

Anthony M. Giaquinto, Jr spent a lot of time talking with me at the show. The fly pictured above is actually in my personal collection. You should check out more of his flies here http://www.myflies.com/Bio-Anthony-Giaquinto.aspx
