Note: Missing from this years exhibitors, is Cloudveil, which I find kind of funny since they are running a huge ad in the Fly Fishing Retailer Preshow guide. Both the show guide and website doesn't show Cloudveil as an exhibitor. They were at the recent Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City. Which gets me to wonder why they are not showing or listed yet as an exhibitor at the upcoming Fly Fishing Retailer show. They are kinda of new to fly fishing community by a few years, so why would they not show at the Fly Fishing Retailer and run a huge one page ad as inspired angling apparel. They have great stuff. I have yet to try their waders and boots, or some of their accessories, but I am a huge fan of their shirts, pants, and regular clothing. Hmmm?
