Thumbs up

Great to see Juro, Bill (Fishawk), Pete (Penguin), Fred (A), Case, Steve (Slinger) - did I forget anyone? Some real talented tying going on - including a couple of young enthusiasts who produced some very nice results under the Fishawks guidance.

Congrats to Fred on scoring the primo raffle prize

Special moment was a chance to see a collection of Kenney Abrames' original artwork including the paintings used to illustrate "A Perfect Fish" - simply stunning! Also some very creative tying by John Kelsey, doing some wicked looking prawns with emu feathers and Rich Murphy doing awesome stuff with a multiple-compound wrist fracture and his very cool "Silli-Skin".

Thanks Jenks and Saltwater Edge - you are a "CLASS ACT".
