Thanks Juro, Jeff, John, Terry and any others I may have missed.

Please don't hold it against me. The promotional consideration at the Northeast Fly Fishing Show goes a long way for us in the fishing community. All of us Pro's owe you all a debt of gratitude. The public exposure really helps our ability to get the word out. By helping anglers learn how to design and build our favorite patterns is a great testament of sharing information. We hope you have much success tying them and using them this spring.

Having the booth was a superb idea. Congrats to all who contributed their time, resource, knowledge and friendships. The pics are great. Now go forth my friends and catch some fish. Enjoy the ride.
