Somerset show, NJ

Greetings folks;

It's been a while since I've made a post, so I thought I'd drop a line regarding the flyfishing show in Somerset, NJ (I imagine the same deal as the Marlboro show). It was held this past weekend (Jan 25 - 27). There was the usual bounty of tying equipment, rods and reels, destinations and instruction. I spoke with some folks from New Orleans that guide for redfish just about year-round and my wife and I have been talking about 'Naw-lins' for some time. I think we might go for it - authentic Cajun cuisine in the French Quarter and redfish on top of it!

I saw some of the "ring-leaders" as well - Popovics working at his vise in front of a large croud, Puglisi (my wife insists his flies resemble stuffed animals) and Cathy and Barry Beck. Barry set me up with a couple of rods to cast - RPLXi 11 weight and XP 10 weight. Casting the XP was the most memorable experience for me at the show (VERY easy to throw the long line).

I'm looking forward to the fly-swap, I'm not sure when it is to take place, but I've got some flies I'd like to share.

Best wishes,

Thanks for the report Billy!

With the New England Patriots going to the Big Easy, fans from the northeast have a heck of a weekend opportunity coming up... Cajun food, reds on a fly, and the superbowl!

You really gotta hand it to the Pats, and that's not a joke about turnovers They showed so much heart and desire during the past several games that you could feel it just watching. These guys are playing with such an intense level of desire it doesn't matter what talent is on the other side of the ball. Congrats to the 2001-2002 Patriots!
