The wake-up call rang at 3:45 on Sunday morning.

From my 44th floor window, Canal St. was still a neon flow of people swarming from one street corner to another–some hotel-bound, some still hustling for the decadence of Bourbon St. My eye opening, new gear lusting, friend making, cajun food eating, Abita beer drinking, fly rod casting, flip-flop wearing, sore back cursing, sweating like a stuck pig four day tour of the International Fly Tackle Dealer Show was coming to an unmerciful end. A 6:15 a.m. flight is a sonofabitch.

I’ve got a pretty good amount to write about from the show itself. About the connections and new friends I made mostly. Some gear and other things that I was impressed by as well. But I figured I’d start with a few meager pics from the other show that was going down around any given corner at any given hour of the day. There could be hundreds more, but sometimes you just get caught in a stare. It’s probably just as well.

    I hope you had a truly amazing time there …so much to see , do and experience! I love that I go back every year and find even more to explore! You captured some truly “New Orleans” spots and hope you had the chance to experience all they had to offer. If you did not have a beignet – there is truly something wrong with you! 🙂 Thanks for sharing as always !

      Thanks T. It is a cool place. There are some great out-of-the-way spots we stopped at. A whole lot of history everywhere. And yes I had a couple beignets 🙂
