Road Trip: Somerset Fly Fishing Show

The median hawk: patron bird of all those stuck in highway traffic.
The time has come. I’m heading up the Mid Atlantic coast for two days at the Fly Fishing Show in Somerset, New Jersey. By the way, New Jersey blows old Jersey out of the water  as it relates to angling expos.

What’s on the docket for today?

  • Lunch: Fast food. Preferably something local and/or sketchy enough I should take advantage of being by myself.
  • Stereo: Bluegrass, and an assortment of podcasts related to history, theology, and fly fishing.
  • Dinner: Whatever I can inhale between the show ending and the International Fly Fishing Film Festival kicking off at 6:30.
  • The time in between: Browsing, talking, booking a trip, shopping, interviewing, taking pictures, etc.

And then tomorrow, I get to do it all over again.

If you are going to be at the show, seek me out! I’ve got a beard, a black  Timberland backpack, and I’m much shorter than I sound from the website. I have nothing free to give you, except a firm handshake and gratitude that you read Casting Across.

If you aren’t going to be at the show, check back here next week for some sort of commentary. And, for some practically live coverage, you should be following Casting Across on Instagram, Twitter, and the Facebooks. I swear that I’ll keep the selfies to a minimum.

Interested in last year’s Fly Fishing Show? Here is what I thought of the stops at Marlborough and Somerset.
