The 2018 Fly Fishing Show is sold out of exhibitor booth space announced president and CEO Ben Furimsky. “All seven venues of the 2018 Fly Fishing Show The early August date exceeds our previous earliest sell-out last year by about three weeks and is months ahead of the normal sell-out for all the shows,” he said.
“We are now ‘wait-listing’ potential exhibitors who may find space available at various venues if exhibitors change plans or prior commitments are disallowed. We are also working with facilities and fire marshals on a site-by-site basis to ensure we have maxed out the use of our venues. If we are able to add any booths to lobbies or other common areas we will pull exhibitor names from our waitlist in the order received,” Furimsky said.
Already hailed as the biggest and best fly show south of the Mason-Dixie, it is only the second year for the Atlanta Fly Show. Again this year Southern Trout will be in attendance presenting the Second ST “Legends of the Fly” Hall of Fame for 2018’s six inductees.
“The Atlanta Fly Fishing Show is Southern Trout Magazine’s signature event,” says Don Kirk, publisher. “For us, it is a great-meet and-greet, family reunion. We have a yet to be announced really news worthy events we will be partnering with The Fly Show. It will be the South’s most exciting fly fishing event.”
