A week from today we’ll be headed to Fly Fishing Retailer, our industry’s one big annual tradeshow. Fly tackle manufacturers, their equipment reps, fly shop owners and the whole cast of characters in the fly fishing industry will all descend on the Colorado Convention Center in Denver during ‘FFR’ to make plans for the upcoming year.
So why do you care? Simple – this is when they bring out all the new gear! FFR is not open to the public, but we’re going to do our best to bring you up to speed on ‘Fly Fishing Gear, Vintage 2010’.
We’ll be on site at FFR, covering the show and posting on the new equipment that’s unveiled there. If you’re not that interested in fly fishing gear, we’ll just warn you in advance – we’re going to be posting more frequently than normal from September 10th to the 13th. Sorry!
If you really want the blow-by-blow during the show next weekend, you can get even more frequent updates on our Twitter page.
Among other things, here’s some gear we know we’re going to be writing about.
- Sage’s new Xi3 Saltwater rods (check back tomorrow for a sneak peak)
- Simms’ new No Fly Zone anti-bug clothing
- Buckets of new fly designs
- Hip packs straight out of the future
- A new Sage spey rod that we got to sample in prototype form on the Dean
Fly Fishing Retailer runs from September 10th to the 13th – check back in next weekend to see what’s new!

Is it just me, or was there for a minute a glimpse at tomorrow's "sneak peak" on the xi3? It's gone now, but i swear it was there a minute ago.

There was! Somebody clicked the wrong button…it'll be back up there tomorrow morning at 6 (PST)!
