February 13: How Technology Changed Fly Fishing & What’s Ahead
Find out which new fangled goodies you just gotta have.
In February we welcome the return of Wanda Taylor. Her previous show taught us the hidden dangers in fly fishing; this time she will show us that the race to innovate is not limited to the computer and auto industries. It wasn’t so long ago that neoprene waders and glass rods were cutting edge.
These days most of us are struggling to keep up with the onslaught of must have new products. If you’re wondering what to buy next, Wanda, who has had a long career as an industry insider, will put it all in perspective in a program that promises to be part history and part back to the future.
Instead of fly tying before the meeting, Wanda suggests members bring vintage fly fishing equipment for "show and tell." She is bringing several items herself to share, with intriguing stories about each one.
