  • New Children's Line - Some Items Nearly Sold Out
    Geneva tradeshow 07

    Geneva hooked her first fly fishing vest and fishy hat when she attended a tradeshow with her dad. Not yet on my website are pink and spruce vests for children in sizes 4, 6, 8 and 10. Geneva is wearing size 4. Starting at size 8, the vest is an almost identical replica of the adult vest. Onesies and bibs with Ed Hose's artwork are totally sold out . Fleece vests in pink, lime and pink camo were popular choices as were t-shirts bearing Ed's pictures of the Fishing Love Bug, Friends Forever , Fish Like A Girl and Catchin' A Dream (featured below). To order one of these new and adorable items, please email me at char@charbloom or call me: 970.262.CHAR. I'll have more pictures in the next newsletter and will work on getting them on my website:

    Meet One Of My New Friends, Claudia Sansone

    Watch for our fly fishing, wine tasting clinics in Napa and Keystone. Claudia owns her own vineyard...called Stonefly Vineyards. Her Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon are receiving deserving accolades. It's unbelievable...I departed with a case of it! I was fortunate to be her guest for four days between California tradeshows. I enjoyed amazing hospitality including gourmet meals and the peace and tranquility of wine vine country. Claudia has a fantastic culinary resum? as well. From writing cookbooks to running her own cooking school to rubbing elbows with some of the world's best- known chefs, she has extensive, hands-on experience in kitchens around the United States and Europe. Claudia is equally at home in television studios, working with celebrity chefs and wine professionals like Jacques Pepin, Michael Chiarello, and Andrea Immer. But best of all, she is a passionate fly fisher. Stay tuned....

    The first ever Keystone Rendezvous 2006 was a huge success. Twenty women from five states and three nationalities came to share 3 1/2 days of fly fishing, our stories, our lives. It was enriching in every way as we ventured out to catch our dreams. Join us at the high mountain resort town of Keystone, Colorado for "Fishdevous 2007". Registraton is limited to 25 women so sign up now. Don't miss the fun! rendevous07/keystonrendezvous2007.htm

    Blessings of Tradeshow Season 2007

    Whew! Ten tradeshows, 10,600 miles on the road and priceless new friendships....those are my best memories of the 2007 season. I couldn't begin to tell you the generosity and kindness of people in fly fishing. I sold product, made contacts with retail stores, attended dinners and parties and met the most amazing people at my seminars on "How To Net Your Dreams". For me, it can't get any better than the smiles on the faces of the children and the women who found fishing products made just for them. Above are twins Cierah & Paulo in Love Bug shirts and CB, LLC hats.

    I'd like to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who bought my products, attended my seminars, stopped and visited my booth and signed up for my newsletter. The network of amazing people I have met through fly fishing is one of the most suprising gifts of my life.

    Each month I plan to highlight a truly amazing woman. This month I'd like to ask you all to visit Jana Stanfield's website: to see how she is dedicating a portion of her life to Women Helping Women Help The World. She is truly inspirational and someone that I am privileged to have as a friend. Please listen to her music, sign up for her newsletter and buy a CD. Her song, We Will Do Amazing Things is one of my personal favorites. I can never listen to it enough times.
