Here’s Your 2024 Consumer Fly-Fishing Show Schedule!


One of the best ways to overcome cabin fever during the long winter months is to attend a fly-fishing consumer show . . . or perhaps several of them. This year, show season kicks off on January 5. Then things really get rolling right through March, as there’s a wide variety of events from California to Massachusetts, and from Texas to St. Paul.

Every year, the list changes, but things seem fairly stable now. If you’ve got a link to or other info about a show I’ve missed, I’ll get them on the list.

So find the show nearest you (or the big one you’re willing to travel to) and mark your calendar. Spending two or three days checking out new products, fondling tying materials, or watching one of your heroes on the casting pond is a great way to beat the winter blues. These shows are also great places to check out the new Orvis stuff!

  1. Unfortunately, aside from a poster released last August, I can’t find any info on the Sowbug Roundup. Nothing on sowbugroundup.org or northarkansasflyfishers.org

  2. Hey guys,
    Could you share with me the the rest of your event schedule for the rest of the year.

    May, June, July and so on.
