Everyone living within the range of this particular forum is within driving distance of the Southern Council Federation of Fly Fishers Conclave in Mountain Home, AR at the end of this week.
The SCC is one of the biggest conclaves in FFF, and a fine gathering of fly fishers. I'll be there giving seminars ranging from building your own furled leaders without the use of any tools or jigs (other than your fingers and a pair of nippers) to fishing Ambergris Caye, Belize on the cheap.
If you've never been to conclave, you should go.
