Ben Furmisky President and CEO of The Fly Fishing Show

Looks like Chuck Furmisky is going to be spending a little more time on the water and a bit less on the show floor.   Congratulations Ben on your new role!

Ben has worked for the show as a speaker, fly tier, exhibitor, and staff member on site. Ben took over the role as Co-Director in 2009, working alongside his father, Chuck. Over the past 6 years, Ben has expanded his job duties with the show. He will now continue working full time overseeing the day-to-day operations. Chuck will continue his role as Director and his wife, Janet, will continue managing ticket sales. Both will be available at all show locations.

"As for me, I'll be looking forward to more fishing time," says Chuck.

"My wife, Brooke, and I are very excited about the future of the Fly Fishing Show.  I look forward to continued growth and moving our show ahead as a leader in the industry. We are already selling out our 2016 shows at a record pace which is a great indicator for our industry of the year to come," says Ben.
