SWE Fly Tying Show

Struck out on the raffles but a good time was had anyhow. Great to see Doc, Adrian, Fuzzy, Slinga, Mark and Bert, Jimmy, Sean, TodD and, of course, Pete and his magnificant herring phlys (was tempted to sneak a couple of them into my shirt but I probably woulda smelt like a fish) and so forth.

Time to tie a few flies and get ready for the season. Won't be long now.

Your right Fred, won't be long now. I happened to find one of those Pendback Phleyes under my windshield wiper when I left

Very good show....there certainly was a lot of good tying information at the various tables, but I think I will stick to the Trick Flyworm for the early season

J Fuzzy Basser:hehe: aka....?

A hush fell over MuddVille...

SWEDGE report...
The Salt Water Edge boyz put on one noteworthy event and my hat goes off to EVERYONE who made it such a pleasure!
REALLY NICE!

but on a down side...
Fred's remarkable luck FINALLY ran out when he got raffleskunked!
Mighty Casey stuck out and Muddville will never be the same!

and...
someone left a nice premium chunk of fur behind...gimme' an ID and I'll get it to you soonerorlater...if not claimed by July 4th, I start clippin'!

ps
WARNING: the DTHP's (dual tube herring phlyz) all are equipped with exploding die packs and a LOJACK device!

Agreed that it was good to see everyone, especially those that I had not seen in quite a while (you know who you are.... ).

I think it's safe to say that we're all ready to get to the fishing!

The Penguin's Pharside Herring Phlyz drew plenty of attention from passers by, and Pete was more than happy to share his phishy knowledge....

But the Penguin wasn't the only pro in attendance. Alan Caolo was there, tying up some dynamite flats flies like his green diablo crab....

I bumped into many others such as Captains Jim White, Todd Murphy, and Jamie Boyle. Kenney Abrames was also in attendance, and he and a handful of others (Caolo and Skok, to name a few) gave some fine slideshow presentations.

I can think of worse ways to spend a winter day.

Looks like it was a great show. Family commitments required that I miss the show. Hope to see some of you at the Bear's Den Show.
