RE:With the old fly tyers last night + CCA report

Sounds like a great meeting Terry. Had the pleasure of sharing a table with Bob Pink, Dave Corbet, Jeff Roop and others at the huge CCA banquet last night. You can imagine there were a few jokes made at me about the farm raised salmon they served - and yes I ate every delicious scrap. (My issue is not about raising fish, it's about letting them mix with the real thing). Bob had some more awesome flies to share with us, the kind you hold and look at the mind wanders to thoughts of shadows charging around the rip and rods bent hard to the butt - particularly the matched bunny strip fly ala. Hunter's. Roop's typically high spirits and wit kept things interesting. Ran into Thorne, 'Monomoy' Ron, many, many others. It was a big event.

Lost a few brain cells to alchohol with Steve Moore and Mike Powers afterwards, but those lost were nothing compared to the insights gained in the conversation. Crawled in sometime around 1:30 or 2:00... Sometimes a hazy conversation reveals clarity of things discussed in the following morning's thoughts. Time for aspirin.
