The Derby City Fly Fishers hosted their 5th annual Kentuckiana Fly Fishing Show. Snow and slick roads didn’t seem to hurt attendance and organizers were pleased with the show.
“I think it’s been great considering the weather,” said DCFF president Kenneth Kloeppel. “It was a steady stream of people throughout the day and all things considered, we really can’t complain.”
There was no shortage of things to do and see at yesterday’s show. Seminars drew good crowds and as always, people stood shoulder to shoulder when Macauley Lord did his casting demonstrations.
Plans are already underway for next year’s show. While some shows cater to the experienced angler, there is a lot at this show for the person just wanting to learn about fly fishing.
“We are trying to drum up support and interest in fly fishing in the community,” said Kloeppel. “We get a lot of people that show up and say they want to learn, but are not sure how to get started. We want to help this person, which in turn grows the sport.”
