Jared.. I will be there. I don't miss many UTF meetings... the best in tying education.

Jared... great show last night and nice to see Dave F, Todd and Brendan O'Brien.... Sat right next to Poplovic and watched him tie these new Bucktail Streamers... they came out great... some translucent others full... He says this is his new concentration. The slide show was spectacular about Harkers Island and Albie Blitzes. The only problem was I spent another $50 on tying supplies from Hunters and almost dropped $95 on a Hardy 1924 catalogue and fishing book. When I ran out of Money, I put the touch on Brendan who passed me a $20. Oh...brother...

glad you enjoyed it....(btw, it is spelled Popovics)...:)
As good as the Harker's video was...I thought his bait presentation was remarkable. Best (perhaps first) I've
seen of its kind where saltwater is concerned! Truly groundbreaking work.
Paul DiNolo is joining us next month, and then the annual
auction in April
UFT is soliciting donations, so if anyone feels like donating something it would be greatly appreciated!!!!
Marvelous evening !!!
Popovics is very entertaining and that bait info video was eye opening. I did enjoy the Cape Lookout get together, especially the look on Lefty's face when he realized he was being honored.
:eyecrazy: hey John, when you tie some of those bucktail streamers up, post some pictures and recipes... notice how I didn't say "if you tie some of those buctails up" :D Tom D

Will do.. but I have to buy the camera first. I will be looking into that in a couple weeks.. then you get that and about 100 bonefish flies to boot.

Pop stuff: didn't see him tie but the baitfish video was awesome. I'd like to see it again.
Harkers was pretty cool too.
John: you might be broke but at least you caught forty or so between reels...
as usual, it was a great evening - lots to learn & put into practice.
