boar,

I'll be there. I may actually be working it on Super Bowl Sunday. Not sure yet though. But I am definately going. I will be looming around the Bedford Sportsman's booth or you'll catch me with Sedotti by the Rio booth. Need to pick some brains for Spey casting.

Boar,

I have fished the Hudson for 15 years now and for the past 10 years have done EXTREMELY well!! Averaging roughly 15-30 fish a day ( alot more when the time is right ). Not all on the fly however, but hey sometimes you cant be picky. I also know of a few "ZipperLip" areas where the fishing can be GREAT and no one is around and you can catch the Stripes in a small river setting like you were fishing for trout. Great place to swing huge herring patterns on a spey rod.

Feel free to ask me any questions you may have. Shoot if you want I will start fishing around the second week of Feb. So let me know .. have pleanty of room on the Boat.
