Meet our Guest Blogger- Alan Erdossy from Broadside International.
Since the age of Confucius anglers have been attaching feathers and furs to hooks to catch fish. Why? Because fly fishing is fun.
If you’d like to experience this traditional art form first hand, consider one of Broadside International’s fly fishing schools in NH and VT (trout tend to live where it is beautiful). Simplified Fly Fishing classes are scheduled for June and July, and a full day fly tying class is scheduled for March 23rd. Follow Broadside International on Facebook for details. Broadside will have a booth at the NH Fly Fishing Show, March 2-3 in Pelham, NH, at the Pelham Fish And Game Club to answer questions about fly fishing and their regular schools, classes and excursions.
Broadside founder, Alan Erdossy started fly tying at an outdoor expo in his home town in 1955, and has been sharing his enthusiasm for the preservation and protection of this fine sporting tradition for over 60 years. Active with Trout Unlimited and the Federation of Fly Fishers, Alan also coordinates a Fly Fishing Camp for Teens each June in VT.
Mention the Beasties to him at the Broadside Booth in Pelham, and he’ll teach you a new knot to use when you are fishing.
Alan’s specialty is fly fishing the northeast for trout, Atlantic and landlocked salmon, and striped bass.
Thanks Alan! I hope some of you folks can go to the Fly Fishing Show, March 2-3 in Pelham, NH, at the Pelham Fish And Game Club
9th annual Fly Fish New Hampshire show
Pelham NH March 5th & 6th
“The Fly Fish New Hampshire show is the largest fly fishing show in northern New England and has the largest contingent of New Hampshire guides. One of the advantages of any show is the opportunity to interact with vendors, guides and other participants. The show is large enough to have a good selection of vendors and guides but small enough so there’s ample time to talk and attend presentations.” –http://flyfishinginnh.com/vforum/showthread.php?p=47482
Alan is amongst one of my most favorite people! If you have any interest at all in learning about fly fishing, or joining a trip/workshop or class, HE IS the guy! I would most highly recommend for knowledge, experience and fun. I really don’t think you can do better! So, mark your calendar and go check it out in March 5 or 6 to meet him in Pelham NH and go out doors and have some fun this season with the fish and Broadside International.
