Spencer Higa, of  Falcon’s Ledge, sent in this great picture from the Phoenix International Sportsmen’s Exposition, along with this report:

First of all, I thought the entire show was a great success in that we taught more people about fly fishing through our “Fly Fishing 101″ promotion and hopefully got them excited about continuing to learn more about the sport. The kids were especially excited when we allowed them to use the short demo rods to catch some foam fish. By making a game of fly casting, we ensured that the kids had fun and didn’t want to stop. Parents literally had to pull their kids away from our booth. And seeing how determined the kids were to catch the fish, the parents couldn’t help but to wander over and give it a try themselves.
