Great! I'll see you there. I'll email you to arrange where / when. The information is at eg. Bob Popovics - I hope so too!

12-19-2000, 06:02 AM
I don't know what day(s) yet but I will definitely be there.

12-19-2000, 11:17 AM
I'll be the guy casting all the 4 pc. 6 wt.s in the pool.


12-19-2000, 11:35 AM
Hey Terry...try and stay out of the pool this year...or if you insist in
getting in, wear waders!

Juro et al,
I plan to be there Saturday (from morning start through (hopefully) early afternoon).I'd be up for meeting for a morning coffee/tea beforehand, lunch, etc.

I've flown a few presidential support missions...all the Secret Service
"men-in-black" wear the "pin-of-the-day" for quick ID...perhaps Forum Folks could wear a "pink crustacean" or the "fly-of-the-day"...or you might just suggest a specified FFF rondezvous time in the lounge...
I suspect you may sustain a complimentary buzzz !

GREAT IDEA SOLO! I hope to have gizmo's hats and such done by the show dates, but maybe it would be worth doing some buttons by then too. I'll look into it.

01-02-2001, 02:04 PM
Hopefully be there Friday afternoon, before the hords of people over the w/e.
Are you thinking of meeting some place for a social?

Thought I'd refresh this post since time is drawing closer. I am going to be working the CCA booth Sat morning 9-12. PLease come by and introduce yourself if you are in the area.

01-11-2001, 12:35 PM
I will look for the Friday contingent, as I plan to be there then... maybe Saturday am.

01-11-2001, 02:40 PM
Hey guys,

There was a post earlier about Bob Popovics being at the show.

Bob will be bring a limited number of copies of his book, POP FLEYES.... Bob Popovics's Approach To Saltwater Fly Design by Ed Jaworowski and Bob Popovics. I've reserved a copy for myself. If anyone else in interest, please post your desire. I can tell him to put them aside and when you go to the show at any time just mention my name and he'll have a copy waiting for you. Of course he will put his Jon on it.

Need a count though.


01-12-2001, 06:36 AM
Ray... please reserve one for me..will he be there on Friday and/or Saturday? As I mentioned earlier I am planning on going Friday.

01-12-2001, 07:37 AM

I'm at school right now and don't have access to a brochure. Can anybody supply John with some information?

Will Popovics be tying during the Friday portion of the show?

There is a web site also for the Marlborough show, but I don't know if they would have the scheduled times posted.


01-12-2001, 08:43 AM
Ray ,don't go to all that.. I will probably be there Saturday in the morning. But I really want to get that book . I will be looking for books on Tying methods. I have got down the clouser and deciever and some other epoxy flies as well as squid and Puglisi... But I really need to study technique. The Pop book will give me a valuable perspective on epoxy use,I think. I will find out when he is there if I don't hear on this thread. I have a number of "recipe" books down the Cape.. Lefty's and Orvis, Roberts ,etc.. But do you have any recommendations for others that help more on technique and How too, as oppose to just recipies. I will look for them at the book booths at the show if you can give some recommendations.

01-12-2001, 08:49 AM

I haven't found any books with detailed info re: technique. Some of the patterns in Veverkas "Innovative Saltwater Flies" are covered in better detail than standard pattern books.

I think you're headed in the right direction with the classes & attending UFT. The other key ingredient is experience which it looks like you're stocking up on rather quickly. Keep going and try to stay away from the chartreuse!!


01-12-2001, 09:57 AM

There are two ways I believe are the best ways to really learn epoxy methods. Books would be my third choice. Remember your dealing with manual skills here. Watch experience tyers during demonstrations and ask questions. At show they can sometimes duplicate what you might be doing wrong. Of course you might forget some of this knowledge by the time you return home. So I feel that having vcr tapes are the best. You can run them the same time your doing the task. If you make a mistake or puzzled, just rewind. But the important fact is that your seeing the fingers/tool manipulation. That somthing that can't get conveyed from books. Bob P has three great tapes. I can let you borrow them if you like

Anyone have any other hints for John?


01-12-2001, 10:16 AM
Jeff and Ray... thanks... I will keep those things in mind at the show.. Ray, I will look for some tapes at the show, but if you loan me yours I will return them to you at the clave the following week. jeff.. I am staying away from Chartruse,but have done a number of Kooms' rats ass which is the fly that gave me all the sucess over the years at least at the light house.. that fly is all chartruse as you know.

01-12-2001, 12:08 PM
DO they allow video cameras at these shows?

01-14-2001, 09:37 AM
well, the only time I can get to the show is Saturday morning for the opening till 3 or so. Tod, would be great to hook up for breakfast/coffee / whatever beforehand. Tom D

P.S. is anyone thinking about attending any of the tying clinics with Gartside or Best?

01-14-2001, 03:26 PM
I'm planning on Saturday till mid-afternoon.

There's a great breakfast place in Northboro, just down Route, near Stan's Sub Shoppe.
I'm sure the hotel has a place as well, if anyone's interested.

01-14-2001, 03:44 PM
Count me in for breakfast on Saturday... but I'll need to be at the show on time.

01-14-2001, 04:04 PM
I'll be there, soaking it all up (and shopping for a new 9 wt...)
I can't speak to breakfast, but if anyone's planning to meet for lunch or dinner, the Oxford--right nearby on rt 20--serves the world's best gnocchi (and other wicked good, wicked cheap Italian food.)

01-15-2001, 08:00 AM
Juro - ditto, I want to see the casting demo and I believe that's the first thing at 10:00.

TomD - I see a message saying you can't make Saturday?

I would like to do breakfast at 8:00-8:30. We can do the hotel and be sure to not miss the start of the show... sound good?

then roaming around in the PM...

Youch! Senility AND bad vision at the same time at 39. What's in store for the big FOUR-O? Scarey.

01-15-2001, 11:41 AM
