    F3t...chicagoland show

    For those of you who have attended in the past and/or for those that like to plan ahead (or for those who have never attended)

    Wilmette Theater
    Wed, May 1st

    $12 advanced $15 at the door

    This is the third year for the show in the Chicago(ish) area. Last year was a sellout so plan accordingly.

    There is ticketing information via the tour site.

    Another quick update...

    The show is just over three weeks away and the swag pile just got a BIG boost.

    Scientific Anglers was kind enough to drop probably 1K worth of lines and fly boxes for the event. Shark Skin, GPX, Mastery Series, there is no shortage of casting goodness in that pile.

    Abel Reels was also VERY generous as was Flying Pig Fly Rods...hint hint.
    There is also a complete Orvis rod/reel/line set up to win (Helios/Hydros)

    Also received some great stuff from The Old AuSable Fly, Gates Lodge, Nomad Anglers, Fish Porn, Fiber Glass Manefesto, LL Bean, Costa, Bad Axe Designs, Double Gun Cigars...and there is still more stuff from various other companies on the way including another care package from Orvis corporate. I suspect there will be no shortage of smiles on a lot of peoples faces as they leave the show May 1st.

    Also, rumor has it there is a shortage this year of the "Stone Fly" magazine which usually gets handed out to all who walk through the door. They sent 200 last year and every one of them got scooped up, this year there is only 150 (and there is no more) so with an expected crowd of 200 (based on last years attendence) it's first come first fyi.

    Still tickets available but I suspect that will start to change in the next couple weeks as the show draws closer.
