    Default Re: Lancaster Fly Show

    It was a great show! Always a pleasure to meet my fellow forum members. Would have been nice to have been able to socialize a bit more on Saturday, but it was a very busy day. Sunday was very slow...spent most of the day tying Glow Whistlers for one of our Costa Rican guides. I used up two whole bottles of super glue. Those things are wicked! It was amazing how many "experts" stopped to tell me I was doing it wrong (none of them were my friends from here....I think), even though they never fished a day in CR for Tarpon. Its really hard to find nice ways to say "go **** yourself". Bob Clouser gave me his seal of approval....good enough for me!

    Saturday night's social gathering at Jim Murphy's house (we call it the "House of Hardy") was a real blast. Jim sure knows how to entertain! Super food and liquid refreshments. Jim is truely a class-act.

    A friend and I went on Sunday, but before I saw your post so we didn't avoid ...just didn't know.

    It appeared to be a little slow on Sunday, but it was fun. The guy I was with is a fine caster, but as we watched Lefty work his magic cast after cast he says, "This is too embarrassing." Lefty is truly a joy to watch.

    We had a good time. We checked out the toys and bought tying materials. I'd like to see it grow for next year.

    Went for the first time. Paid for 2 days but only went one. Was there from 7am to 9pm or so. Got really repetitive IMO. Probably won't go next year since we have the Virginia Fly Fishing and Wine festival here every year. Maybe some crossover vendors.

    Got to see Bob Clouser and Lefty which was a real pleasure. What is it about older fellas? They just seep wisdom and humor. Seeing and listening to them made the whole experience worth it for me.

    Would love to make it up to Somerset sometime.

    I was there yesterday at about 3 pm...really should have been earlier but didn't have the time as I was 2 hours away. It was pretty good for the tying supplies I went there for but some booths started clearing out early.

    You should have went to the WV Outdoor Show.My son was working a booth there and when he had a chance to walk around he said two booths had great deals on tying supplies! He called me to check on prices while I was at Lancaster.Spent money without even being there!Haha!

    The show was great, it was my first time there, Lefty's presentation was informatable and humerous, I bought several items from multiple vendors, I met Mike Heck a local guy from my area, one thing I didn't see and forgot about was the rooms that had casting and movies, that would of keep me there longer, one thing I would suggest is "used rods for sale" from any vendor, I see all kinds of forums and the bay, for used rods for sale but you can't feel them over the internet, I was ready to buy from a guy that has a ton of used rods on his website & he didn't bring a single one. No biggie I it was a pleasure talking to him.

    Overall a great show!
