We know as well as anyone that fly fishing can be done with a bare minimum of gear. But the annual release of new product information gives fly fishers a chance to see some incredible innovation and to get excited about the next season's opportunities.

MidCurrent editor and publisher Marshall Cutchin said of the new product announcements for 2009, "We know as well as anyone that fly fishing can be done with a bare minimum of gear. But the annual release of new product information gives fly fishers a chance to see some incredible innovation and to get excited about the next season's opportunities."
MidCurrent's selection was made immediately after the September Fly Fishing Retailer Show in Denver, Colorado, a trade event that showcases thousands of new products. This year's introductions were highlighted by more short fly rods, new high-tech reel designs, and especially the move to more enviro-friendly wading gear and apparel.
