Any comments / feedback / suggestions? Here's the place to put them.

Will work towards adding fly tying in '13. What do you all think?

Well , technically , a fishing 'fly' is a type of lure  ;D
How about a poll or something ?

I think the introduction of Flys and Fly Tyers would be a natural progression it could be all part of growth of any event.

With Lures  and Flys ( Australian ) if there is still space I can se where Ausie made rods would be popular. 

Then a bit of space out in the paddock for casting competitions with both when the customers need a break.

Just some ideas to toss around fellas.

It was pretty awesome and huge amounts of people last year, any chance of moving across the paddock to the bigger building?

It is possible, however doing that will vastly increase the cost of the event, and therefore increase the cost to exhibitors and the public.

Am looking at options like; reducing the depth of displays to increase aisle space. Could have fitted another 15 stalls last year so definately room to grow there.
Also looking at another larger venue in the area.

 At days end, it will depend on how much support we get from council.
