Not quite ready to be promoting the business with a show platform as of yet (only got 4wts till fall). But certainly going there to make some contacts and snoop around. So I guess I would say "kind of" ? I certainly will be wearing a logo shirt for the competition though..haha. Right now I'm topping out my 8 weight at about 120'-125' with Royal Wulff triangle steelhead 105' WF. On the grass the line gets hung a little and my nail knot catches my guides alot. I think I can get a bit more indoors with a distance 120' line for sure. Would certainly be nice if I could at least make a strong showing, but my ego doesnt want to get crushed either...haha. It would be my first competition and I might be feeling the pressure.
