The event is to teach beginners the fundamentals of fly-casting as well as instruct advanced casters in improved techniques. The principles can be used in both salt and fresh water.

Hope to make it to the casting clave tomorrow. Will have to get some warmer clothes out with this cold spell, wish the 70 degree weather would have held on a few days longer. I'm sure the colder weather will discourage a few people from coming out to the casting clave. Hope the coffee stays hot!

Hope to see some of you tomorrow. :)

Slinger and the rest of us Rhody guys will be there tomorrow working out the kinks. We're hoping for nice weather and a great turnout.

Slinger will be signing autographs from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. Bring any hats, idem of clothing, or pictures, he signs 'em all. All excepts thongs. Sorry! :tsk_tsk:

Children are welcome. He'll sign anything but a check or credit slip. He's been tying up a storm all winter. It's worth the price of admissions just to see his creations. Admission is $2.00 for his immediate family members. All non members and general public are free. :eyecrazy:

Hope to see GregD there. Dave Fix, don't forget to bring your fishing gear just in case.
