Fly Fishing Retailer Show - Denver, Colorado
Zugbug and I have made it to the Fly Fishing Retailer Show in Denver Co. We are both operating on minimal (read as "No") sleep but we did manage to spend some time grilling the folks from C.C. Filson Co about their new lines of clothing and luggage. We will have more about this later but suffice it to say they have some interesting new products for 2006 & 2007 and are expanding their lines into everyday sportswear as well. This move is probably directly related to their CEO, Doug Williams background with Ralph Lauren.
Filson is having the grand opening of their retail store tonight but Zug and I think we will pass on it in favor of the Drake Magazine gathering and Fly fishing Video Awards show later tonight.
Look for more extensive coverage of the show tomorrow.
