Accompanying Josh will be Steve Choate.

He has also fished many of the international two handed destinations of British Columbia, Chile, Argentina, Scotland, Russia, and many places in between.
Chad Normoyle our Gloomis representative will also be on hand with various raffle prizes. Chad says he is bringing the latest in Spey, Switch, and Single handed rods from Gloomis. The latest innovation in rods is the brand new NRX series. If you have a specific line you wish to try out on one of these great new rods, please either bring it down or ask us before July 25 and will arrange to have it on hand. Or, you can just bring your reel and line down and demo the rod. To help you make a buying decision after you cast a Gloomis NRX fly rod the shop will give you a FREE RIO or AIRFLO fly line to match your NRX rod!
Also, for the angler who can cast the furthest, Chad will be giving away a FREE NRX 590-4LP. The rod will be shipped to the lucky winner at the conclusion of the event.
We look forward to having you and hope you can join us on July 26 at Alton Baker, 2-5pm. We will be in the pond area of the park.
