What's New for '02

The Julian calendar might mark January 1 as the beginning of the new year, but for the fly-fishing industry, the new year begins with September's annual Fly Fishing Retailer World Trade Expo. For three harried days in September, roughly 1,200 buyers (representing about half that number of fly shops) look at, try out and make buying decisions on the products 300 or so exhibitors have to offer.
