I wish I would have found out about it earlier, I've already planned a trip north to go snowmobiling. Is it around the same time every year? I'll have to make plans to go to next year's show.

Look forward to this every year but have to miss it this year, at least on Saturday. I may be able to get back in town for a bit of the Sunday show.

I'll be there with the family on Sunday.

If you see a tall guy with a red beard that will be me.

 

You'll also likely see me with 2 or 3 very excited little girls looking at gear.

Hey all,

 

 

I had a great time at the Fly Fishing Expo on Sunday.

 

I was able to pick up a few things I needed and a few that I didn't know I needed.

 

3 saddles pink, purple and dun from Keough. Guess which ones are for the kids.

 

6 spools of thread, extra bobbin, large hair stacker and orange McFly Foam from StudioE

 

One booth hit me up for a $1 grab box of stuff so I got dubbing in pink, red and yellow as well as some red wool that I was actually looking for. I also got a luminous hair that glows. Picked up a pack of body stretch in burnt orange.

 

Another booth got me for a yellow deer tail so I can finally fishing a Mickey Finn in the right colors.

 

The guys at Hog Creek set me up with 2 furled leaders. Then when I wasn't looking they made a pink one special on the spot for my girls for free. I went back and bought 3 more leaders from them.

Treat my kids with that kind of kindness and you have my business for a long time.

 

Lastly the guys from Hook and Hackle robbed me blind when Ron held me down and forced me to buy a pack of dubbing, a fly net and SolarEZ UV-Cure Fly Tying Resin with a light.

If you've not met Ron he's a great guy and always treats you well with honesty.

 

Hope those who could make it had fun too.

If you missed it sorry, but they're is always next year.
