I'll be there today also. Just look for the guy with the 11ft two-hander.

I'll be hanging around with John K at the Fly Fishing New England booth. It's great to see the magazine is alive and well again, and looking better than ever. They've offered to become a sponsor as well for 2004!

I will also be helping to answer questions about the Atlantis and other double-handed rods at booths carrying them at the show - the Saltwater Edge (RI), Hunter's (NH) , and Natick Outdoors (MA).

But most of all, I will be roaming around and ENJOYING THE SHOW for the first year in a few.

See you all there! I will check in to see about SAT dinner plans later.

Is this before or AFTER they honor their commitments for Catherwood's Giant Killer book and prepaid sales that are over two years old- :mad:

Good to see you John. I enjoyed my time there, and somehow managed to make it out of there with enough money left to buy a coffee. I'm sure that by the end of tomorrow the people in the booth at the end of the casting pool will be saying "darn Juro" every time they hear the thup of the shooting head hitting the backstop.

Also spotted the Slinger on Friday. Josko, too. I will be back on Saturday. Had a good talk with Simon at Rio about the Scandinavian Shooting Heads and the Cold Water Clouser (well any big fly) Line. Scott rods notably absent this year. Two TFO booths. Rich Murphy, Jack Gartside, John Kelsey, Dave Skok tying up a storm.

Dave -

You got my interest so I talked to John about it, you should too. In fact, Bill Catherwood is at John's booth today tying flies in Fly Fishing New England Magazine's booth so you might ask him too.

A signed and numbered limited edition of Bill's book would stand high on my bookshelf too, and I am interested in getting one of these for my collection. But the artist must deliver before the prints can be made, and in this case the finished work has not been delivered to the publishing company, who BTW also runs a magazine.

Indeed a small group of people have paid up front, and the publishing company has advanced funds to the writer - but the writer must complete the work before things can proceed.

I do not want to alienate anyone in this, especially Bill, but the situation does not warrant any anger toward the publishing company when the book has not been provided to them.

The advance sales were to obtain a signed and numbered first edition and intended to provide an advance to the author. As I understand it, all people who paid up front have been offered a refund. The publishing company is already in the same hole with the group who paid up front.

Anyone else deal with the Shu Fly booth from NY?
Almost bought a GLooomis Cross Current 1 piece 10 wt.
But...when a few of us wanted to test cast it, a guy from the booth got all antsy and turned around with rod and left us hanging at the casting area???
NOTE to booth: Lost sale or two.....
Maybe they can consider changing their name to Shu Customer??

BTW - I spent much of the day with Bill Catherwood in the booth today. All I can say is what a class act! A true New England legend. No wonder this book is so hotly desired. Perhaps someone could get involved with finishing the book with him, putting his knowlege into words.

Maybe I will volunteer to do it myself, typing it on the computer based on what he says.

I had to leave around 2 since I had a major problem with a contact lense and forgot my glasses at home.. Had to keep it in to drive and it was painful..by the time I got home I didn't feel like driving all the way back... I telephoned Juro and left a message...so..I am sorry I missed any dinner that occured. Nice to see FredA. and Adrian and Penguin. Bumped into JimW and had lunch with a group of guys from reel-time. The Down 'N Trout tying material booth was a great take as it is every year..bought some new stuff called DNA frosty and regular fish fiber and some Mirror Immage ... Stpped by the Bears Den for some stuff and bought a Meadow Run Press signed limited edition book by John Cole called "Fish of My days". meet Bob Mitchell who was manning the booth for the New England Magazine and where Juro made it home for the show. I wonder if I should drive over just tommorrow morning. Being around that stuff in the mid winter feels good but not in the wallet.

'Found this on the SWURV (SmallWhiteUrbanReconVehicle) when I was leaving the Marlboro show...
It has the signature of a Capt Stan fly but this one was sporting a non-typical Verivas hook...
Nice fly...Thanks!
Now...Who done it???

Or am I going to have to run it for fingerprints and send it to the C.S.I. DNA lab?!
:confused:

CSI Nearside has determined that the phley in question does not have JC eyes so that eliminates the master of the T-shirt :hehe:

Nice to re-connect with Juro, Adrian, Fred, Todd D & Jim - sorry I missed Striblue.

Surprised to see Pete without a shopping basket full of gear. ;)

Found the hackle I need to fix those top-water flies. Anyone with version1.0 please submit them for the updated version.

See you on the water!

I resemble that remark! I like the laidback, trend setting attire though.

By the way, I don't get mad, I get even.

Oh ya. It was great to see everybody, especially Tod D and Roop who I didn't see during the 03 striper season.

I had a good time. The T&T booth restored my faith in high-end rods. I spent my $$$ at the English Angler Trappings booth and checked out the Quebec/labrador lodges in some detail.
They actually closed the show early because of the football game.

Juro, thank you for a detailed explanation. I didn't attend the show.
