Dems not buying fly rods?

One shop owner worries about his sales during the upcoming Democratic Convention in Denver, Colorado. Via
Not everyone is so sure. Around the corner at Tewksbury & Company, manager Bryan Klein worries security and traffic concerns will keep regulars away, and scheduled convention events may cut down the number of visitors dropping by. His store sells Colorado wines, tobacco and fly fishing supplies, and it books guided trout fishing trips.

"We've heard a lot of businesses are going to be closed," Klein says, citing traffic worries. "I know I'm going to have to find a new route into town."
Don't worry though the real movers and shakers in the fly fishing world will be in Denver during September. However they might not be buying much outside of the convention center either.
Middle Tennessee Editor Jay Moore and I will be providing full coverage of the Fly Fishing Retailer show as well as sneaking in a bit of Colorado fishing. Be sure to check in for our coverage. If you are out there be sure to look us up at Dick Cheney's Sunglasses booth.
