It was good to see Mr. Scales after many years. I kept it pretty light too. some line, thread, a folder for streamers and a long hard look at that Nautilus NVG which I reluctantly left without purchasing.
Trying to buy less gear this year and hit the water more often, lets see how this works.

Nice seeing you as well... try to make it happen on the water this spring if you stick around long enough. The Nautilus reels are really attractive... I'm sure you'll have three by years end.

I'm really appreciative of the effort that goes into these shows and I think it is a worthwhile way to spend a few hours in February. The raffle is impressive with some really nice items... a Nautilus, Hatch, Rods, Lines, etc. I never win and tried not to put my tickets in any box that I saw a ticket from Ginclear or Jeffsod as they pretty much win everything they enter.

I spoke with the owner.. at least I think he was the owner... of the new diamondback rods. I like the concept of the new rod grips but I'm not sure I love the actual design. I think its old spin gear habits but when I'm in my drift or retrieve I commonly slide my index finger past the cork so I can feel the blank directly. If nothing else... I give them credit for introducing something new.

Peter King had a few really well executed flies... it was simple but one hollow fly with what I think was arctic fox in front. It was simple but probably my favorite fly I saw. Kicking myself I didn't take a pic.

Cohen bugs were great though I think I like them more pre-froglegs. I like the new product he coats the bottoms with... Loon Soft Head. Still look and feels like a deer hair bug vs coating the bottom with an UV cured acrylic.

Interesting to see a few names appear to have one multiples. In particular a John F won five times! Guess they need to stir them up some more.
