  4. Went to the Edison show for the first time ever this year. First fly fishing show ever actually. Drove 4-1/2 hrs through the storm. Stayed for two days, spent a bunch of money, went to a seminar. watched some casting demo's, talked with some great people. It was nice to be able to actually cast some different rods, try some different lines. Overall I had a blast. It was great to get out the damn house. I thought the setup with the guest fly tiers was great.

    I have sad news

    a late, sorry for your loss.
  11. Good Stuff!! I'm gonna be down in port A in the spring. I'm planning on packing a rod. Hope to get a day to explore a bit. Did the guide thing last time. Caught one little dink. I would rather do my own thing and get skunked than pay a few hundred to get skunked.
  12. It’s been awhile. Getting back to the bench. saw this on the Coastfly site. microfry size 12 fire hole 609 white thread mirage tinsel body large opal body/tail - mallard flank body - Uv resin might paint some eyes on it
  13. The new setup. Time to fill the drawers, and get a higher stool/chair
  14. Will do. I got the monster moved into the basement tonight. Will start setting up soon. Here is a pic of the my old setup.
  15. I just got my hands on a nice two person drafting table with drawers down the middle. I got it for free and thought it might make a nice tying setup. The top is 40” high. my question is, do any of you tie on anything high like this ? My current table is 29” high. I’m thinking a taller, comfy swivel chair might do the trick. I haven’t been on much since the early spring, but with the days getting shorter it will be tying season once again soon.
