Jackson Kayak was once again on display with a SUPerFISHAL, Cuda, Coosa and Big Tuna in the showroom at the 2013 Fly Fishing Film Tour stop in Middlebury, VT. Hosted by our local dealer, the Middlebury Mountaineer, the film tour showcases some of the best fly fishing films from around the country. Before the show, various manufacturers were on display with us such as Patagonia, the Vermont Fly Guys, Sage, local artists, and of course a stocked bar from local breweries. It was a sold out show of over 250 people, and the proceeds for the show benefit a local fly fishing club, the New Haven River Anglers. The next day, they kicked off the 2013 VT fishing season with the annual Otter Creek Classic fly fishing tournament.
Congrats to Jesse Haller and Steven Atocha for putting on a great show. It’s great to see such enthusiasm for the sport, kayak fishing, and Vermont’s angling community. It was great to see friends, make new ones, answer questions on our kayaks, and get excited for the 2013 season.
It’s going to be a great summer – up next at the end of June is the 2013 Ditch Pickle Classic fly fishing tournament on Lake Champlain. Jackson Kayak and the Mountaineer will be on display and competing there as well, so mark your calendars! Grand prize this year is plastic, green, was on display at the film tour, and something that starts with a ‘C’ and ends with an ‘a’ . You can figure out the rest 🙂
