    I agree, it was a great show.

    I underspent you by about 50% but I met a trio of tyers that specialize in tying up classic wets, streamers and salmon flies. In addition to their work, each of them also had a huge stash of materials for sale. Needless to say, it was a "kid in a candy store" day for me. Over-feathered and happy, I left the show thinking about what patterns I'd start tying up today.

    Separately, I zipped around the corner of one of the aisles at the show and there was Kathy Beck doing a casting tutorial at the 100' indoor pool. Couldn't pass that one up! What a nice, easy casting stroke she has. Distance - no problem, accuracy - no problem and visual effort - virtually non-existent.

    Anyone interested in further details or contact info on the tying materials, PM me.

    The week before, Kathy was at a show in San Mateo, California. She showed her skills by dropping a fly into a beer cup at 32 feet.
