January and February is show season for many industries because winter is a slower time that allows venders to show off the latest and greatest products for their upcoming year. The Atlanta Fly Fishing show is no different as many industry leaders make their way south. The show is not limited to large vendors but many smaller retailers and outfitters attend the show as well. The Georgia fly fishing community is very small in comparison to other areas of the country, so the show feels more like a family reunion than just an industry convention.
One of the biggest draws of the show is the incredible deals many vendors run. This time of the year stores are making room for 2020 product so that means 2019 product needs to go home with you.
Abel reels have always been a shop favorite with their rich history, stunning quality, and innovative designs. This year Abel flew in one of their artist from California to demonstrate how each of their custom reels are hand painted
Bowman’s Guide Service shared our booth so we always had a full house! While Daniel specializes in big streamers on the Toccoa River near Blue Ridge, his main two guides are jacks of all trades. Kyle and Jason float everything from the Toccoa to the Chattahoochee while also squeezing in some wade trips on private trophy water sections with ease. Bowman is a solid member of the community and brother’s we will always refer clients to for quality experiences and long-lasting instruction.
After a long two days the team had to pack up shop and head back to Alpharetta. Bowman’s boys will be back on the water this week while Wes, Nathan, and Jeff will be back in the shop.
As a winter special Bowman’s Guide Service is running a discount on all guided trips through the month of February. Reach out to Bowman’s Guide Services to book a trip before the month is over!
