Good to run into so many guys from the site. BrookieChaser I will roll a bunch of pictures onto the site this week.

A fair amount of snow heading home yesterday afternoon. It cleared up by the time I got to Snitz Creek Brewery. Better sights and beer there than the show. I had a paddle sampler with a Woolly Bugger IPA. Working on a blog post for that too.

Thanks dkile, I appreciate the posting of the pictures.

That looks like good marketing on the part of the Snitz Creek crew.

I went to the show today (Sunday) and had a blast. Way too much to see in a couple hours. Spoke to lots of people.

Highlight was get to meet Dave Whitlock and his wife Emily. I first purchased one of Dave's books back in the '70s. I have attached a photo of him illustrating/signing a book for me. His individual flies for sale were works of perfection.

Another photo I have posted is of a beautiful watercolor by Mark Susinno.

I also had the opportunity to meet and speak to Mike Heck and Mike Schmidt (Dave has a photo of them on Facebook).

You should takes LOTS of money to these shows!

Mr. Whitlock and wife are good people - met them two years back at the show.
I was there Sunday - tested out a few fly rods - Bought some flies for me, got my girlfriend some earrings (Silver Fly Reels) and a few other items for me. Learned how to use one of my fly tying devices - the Whip finisher. Wish that some of the venders carried some industrial bars or belly rings. I would have gotten something for my daughter.

I kept to my budget of $100.00.

I was there yesterday, hitched a ride with lestrout. Always a pleasure Les. Learned as much from him as anything else.

Spent way too much money and attended a few seminars. Good stuff.

I had a great time at the show. Unfortunately I didn't charge my phone, so no photos from the show. Gotta ALOT of tying supplies. A few good deals, but I didn't look real hard. I had an agenda and shopping list.

I was again amazed by the tying of Steve Farrar. I think he makes some of the best saltwater patterns around.
