Did traffic seem a bit heavier than usual last weekend? With thousands of people having been expected at the annual Fly Fishing Expo at the Royal Plaza Hotel Trade Center, the city of Marlborough hit quite the spike in population for a few days.
The expo is designed for New England enthusiasts to come together to learn about both new-and old-techniques, while over 150 vendors are able to showcase their newest and gear.
Ben Furimsky, son of one of the original founding partners of the expo and current President/CEO, even brought in some celebrity speakers this year to help draw in crowds. “We have Gary Borger doing a fly casting demonstration, we have people like Jason Randall..we have both big name, celebrity speakers here as well as people talking about destinations both local and international,” says Furimsky.
