Prospects of a rainy weekend have you down?
If you're a Southern California fly fishermen, this shouldn't be an issue because spring is just around the corner and the annual Fly Fishing Show will be at the Pasadena Convention Center on Saturday and Sunday, with something for everyone.
Expert tiers and casters will give demonstrations. Representatives from angling destinations will show you what makes their places so special. About 80 exhibitor booths -- ranging from tackle manufacturers and dealers to clothing and lodge reps -- will line the center's exhibition hall.
There will be seminars galore and door prizes for a fortunate few include trips to such amazing fishing destinations as Patagonia, Mexico and Canada.
Detailed information about attendees and seminars is available on the Fly Fishing Show website.
Hours are 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Saturday and 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $15 for adults (or $25 for a two-day pass), $10 for active military, $2 for children younger than 12 and free for Scouts under 16 (in uniform) and children younger than 5.
Rain or shine, the show should get you in the mood to fish.
