Glass Rod Expo Weekend Events

For those of you in the Livingston Manor, New York area this is another reminder that the International Glass Rod Expo is this weekend and will be held at the Catskill Fly Fishing Center & Museum.  This will be a fun weekend for those who attend and I am looking forward to being there.

The weekends events include these presentations...

10:00 a.m. - Cameron Mortenson “The Reinvention of the Fiberglass Fly Rod”

2:00 p.m. - Joe Cornwall “Short and Sweet, Where Fiberglass is King”

4:00 p.m. - Victor Johnson “Four Points of Light; Fiberglass Fly Rods”

10:00 a.m. - Mike McFarland “Fiberglass Blank Rolling Process”

2:00 p.m. - Dr. Todd E. A. Larson “Arthur Howald: The Father of the Glass Fly Rod”

There will be several vendors with fly rods on display including W. Jude Rod Co. and McFarland Rods.  Mark McKellip will also be in attendance with one of his stacked leather handle fly rods.  There will be a variety of vintage and modern glass rods available to try out on the lawn or on an American Casting Association style casting course thanks to Per Brandin.

I will have a small display as well and am carrying up several dozen contemporary fiberglass fly rods from an assortment of companies and small shop builders for those who wish may demo.

This will be a great event and tickets are still available by contacting the Catskill Fly Fishing Center & Museum.  Tickets are $15 for the day or $25 for the weekend.
