I'll see you there too!!

Not sure which day I'm going but a few of us at work might be spending some time on the columbia before/after the show.

I'm looking forward to it as it will be the first real chance I've had to fish the river since I moved here

Nick...I'll be there possibly both days as my boss has decided to sponsor me....I may be wearing a red Home Hardware shirt with a name tag that says "Bud" or a green St.Mary's Fly Fishing hat...but I'll make sure I wear a name tag

Well I was there for most of the day today....a very good little show with a fair number of reps there.....did a bit of shopping for the store and made some awesome contacts for fishing.

All in all a good day.

I agree it was a great event.

I spoke with Kelly from St.Mary's Flyshop (not sure this is the name) regarding fishing classified waters and the benifits they are seeing.
He was very knowledgable and gave me some good background on why this was done.

I also really enjoyed the seminar on fishing the Columbia (even though we had no luck on that rainy Saturday:-( )

I also learned a new knot - a much easier way to tie a loop knot for attaching my flies.

I hope that everyone continues to support this event (even though I didn't win any of the door prizes)
