IFTD is the place to do business for the fly-fishing industry. It’s the place to meet friends new and old, network with people you may have been internet stalking for some time, and to explore upcoming trends in our little world.
It’s also the best time and venue to see all the latest gear, equipment, waders, fly line, tippet and accessories for the 2016/2017 season. Take the opportunity to chat one-on-one with product designers. Wondering why they chose to put that D-loop right there on your favorite sling pack? Ask away. Curious why the ferrules on this year’s iteration of your favorite rod seat differently? This is the time to find out.
It’s also the time to take advantage of show discounts. Shop owners can save thousands of dollars in show discounts from various fly-fishing manufacturers. Many companies use introductory show offers on new lines and there are always business deals to be struck.
