A fly-fishing show will make its first stop in Pasadena this year. The Pasadena Fly-Fishing Show will be held March 3-4 at the Pasadena Convention Center. Previously, the show was held at the Ontario Convention Center. It is also a week earlier than the previous shows, which had been held at the same time as the Fred Hall Outdoors and Travel Show in Long Beach. Guides who represent fly-fishing locations from around the world will be in attendance, along with manufacturers of rods, reels, waders, flies, line, clothing, float boats and other accessories. There will be more than 26 how-to and where-to-go programs and at least seven tying and casting demonstrations per day. There will also be book signings and conservation clubs offering information. Small classes with experts Ed Engle, A.K. Best and Joe Humphries on nymphs, fly-tying and casting will be available for $75. Pre-registration is required. The show, the last stop of a 10-city tour, will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on March 3 and 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on March 4. The cost is $14, and a two-day pass is $24. The cost for youths 12 and under is $2.

Because of the invasion of the Quagga mussel in the Colorado River, boaters are being asked to empty, clean and dry their watercraft after each use. Boats are the primary transporters of the mussels, which were discovered in Lake Havasu last month. All boaters and anyone connected to freshwater aquatic environments should wash the hull of each watercraft once it is out of the water, removing all plants and animal material; drain any water through the vessel’s hull plug and ensure the area is dry; ensure the vessel’s lower outboard unit is drained and dry; clean and dry any live-well; empty and dry any buckets and dispose of all bait in the trash. Any vessel traveling from Lake Mead or the Colorado River should remain dry and out of water for five days. For more information, call (866) 440-9530.
