THE Fly Fishing Show, organiser of events across the US, has launched a YouTube channel that will feature live Zoom sessions to help those in the industry impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
Live Zoom sessions can be viewed through the company’s Facebook page. The first was conducted with Rodrigo Perez, from Angling Untamed, and is now available online. The interviews are hosted by Rob Giannino, of Fly Fishing Journeys.
Fly Fishing Show CEO Ben Furimsky said: “We will have interviews with selected show vendors, manufacturers, lodges, celebrities and various conservation organisations throughout the year that will be aired on Facebook and posted on our YouTube and Instagram channels.
“Current technology allows the Fly Fishing Show to support vendors through this challenging health crisis. COVID-19 has impacted travel and lodges, manufacturing, the local fly shop and so many medium-sized businesses.
“In kicking off the Zoom interviews we are focusing on how our show exhibitors are coping with the challenges they each face, putting things into perspective and how they will work with The Fly Fishing Show.
