I came home with an exchange for my 2wt 6'6 with a 2wt 7'9. Also purchased a Battenkill LA and Mid Arbor. I'll be begging for change the rest of the day out in front of the local stores so if anyone runs across me please be generous. help.gif

I found some Hard to find feathers, Orange dry fly cape for $10, and some dyed goose shoulder feathers. I'm ready to try a couple new patterns. Also got some grouse and starling for wets.

 

The best part was the personal attention we got from a couple of the tiers, namely Dennis Potter and John McClain, they were great! Showed us a couple patterns and techniques that significantly shortened the learning curve.
