What is It? Roadshow: Fishing tackle identified and appraised by expert Bob Selb, from The Classic Fly Fisherman. Have you always wondered what that old fishing equipment book, accessory, fishing print or painting was worth? Bring it to the show entrance and Bob will come out and look at it. If Bob does not know, he knows someone on the show floor who does.
Fly Fishers Book Exchange will return: The Fly Fishing Book Exchange is open to all at- tendees. Attendees are encouraged to bring their used books they would like to sell at the show. The CFFCM will have a ‘Book Exchange’ area set up to display used books for sale; the CFFCM will get a 10% commission for sold books (an additional 5% for credit card purchases). The process is simple: ‘book sellers’ are required to put their selling price and initials on the top right hand corner of the inside right hand front page in pencil. Books can be dropped off at the CFFCM table upon entrance to the show and picked up on their way out with on-the-spot payment for any sold. Attendees get to enjoy the show while their books may be earning them some money.
