...I tried to include a rather unusual photo of 3 seasoned and easily recognized senior members waving feather boas in the air, attempting perfect/tight loops, and making just enough noise to attract the attention of curious/cautious neighbors.

(highly credible/respected) senior members working on their technique..:hehe:

if one looks closely, one might catch a glimpse of an un-named British expatriate teetering on the front porch...

I can neither confirm nor deny... :hehe:

We'll have the Pete Gray Boa system at the shows for impromptu casting lessons.

Tyler I have been trying to come up with a Spey version but the anchor has been difficult so the rug pulls out from under the loop. In all seriousness I think such a training tool would be priceless for Spey casters.

Pete - that was a blast, thanks for the hospitality at Area 61! We need to get Dana out there next year.

Sorry about that chaps, my 75 year old bellicose Brit uncle got his hands on the computer somehow - he gets a bit carried away sometimes. He's not been quite the same since he went looking for that gas leak with a lighted match. I even caught him talking to the flowers the other night.:rolleyes:

Anyway, we've packed him off back to the U.K. and I'll be setting him up with his own screen name and avatar before he gets back here. He's planning on bringing his fly fishing gear so we'll probably be hearing from him on and off this coming season.

Don't worry about him - his bark is worse than his bite.:hehe:
