Thumbs up

Couldn't agree more! Jenks, you are the man. Great time at the Marriott!

I thoroughly enjoyed the chance to witness the impressive tying talent that the northeast boasts... the roster listed on tells it all! With all that talent around me I was hoping some would rub off on me

I'll put up some photos from this event which was by the way was done up in the usual top notch manner we've come to expect from Peter.

We did our share by once again having someone tie their first fly at our table, the smile on the young angler's face was priceless. Good job FishHawk, you've passed the torch. Thank you Adrian for your usual helpful spirit and those GP's will be an important element in the fly raffles out in the pacific northwest. It was great to meet Brian's wife as well, and between lucky Brian and lucky Fred :eyecrazy: there's some real winning karma in the ranks! Jay, that decoy carving was nothing short of amazing, and I can't wait to see the finished product.

Well the breath of early spring bit was a little far fetched this year, as you can see by the picture I took near dusk today (see banner above). It's still a winter wonderland, but the sun is strong and the light doesn't leave the day until dinnertime. I still maintain that the SWE show is the turning point in the winter, and it's all positive yardage toward spring from here!

Look for the slide show...
