I'm 99% sure I'll be there. I'm just not sure what time.

That's the day after I get back from the Philippines so it probably won't happen. I'm sending Shakey to pick up a shirt I won and put me into the raffles.

Three days and counting. The tying schedule is up on the website. Looks like Popovics is scheduled for 12:15 at the featured tying table. Hope to catch that but timing is going to be close probably for my arrival. They have started posting some of the raffle sponsors on the page too. Many are familiar. Always a good place to pickup a fly line.

The NH show is the same day. I think I have to work in Ct the day before. I may just stay in CT friday night, drive up to the show, then head home and hit the NH show.
I still haven't locked down a sling pack so I am hoping to see some this weekend.

Ryan I think Ginclear really likes his Veedavoo. That said there may be a sling pack in the raffle at the den too.

I'll be headed over to the show around noonish. I'm gonna check out Vedavoo's new beast sling made of recycled raft material. It may protect the fly boxes a bit more in the surf, although it's not touted as water proof.

I spent about a half hour talking to Scott from Vedavoo. Stuff is pretty awesome. I like how low profile the bag is.
I hit up the NH show beforehand. Hell of a lot of driving, but I got to try on slings from about every manufacturer between the two places.
Placing my order for a Vedavoo today, the American made put me over the top, plus he was just a real nice guy.
That Water Master sling is pretty cool, its not recycled really, its the waste material left over after they build a raft. Pretty cool idea.

When where you there. Ryan? Jeff & I were there most of the afternoon. Sorry I missed you. Would have loved to meet face to face for the first time.

Hopefully you were not one of the ones who had to walk back to the hotel in the rain Doh! Guess the bus driver decided to take off for a half hour and have lunch without telling Scott.

Here are some photos of Bob Popovics huge as in life size bunker flies tied using a stiff mono tail attachment and his sick lexan boat carrying case. Some of the coolest big fish flies you will see anywhere.

I was there from 2-5. I picked up a small pile of materials and a new bobbin. I also threw $20 into the raffles. I checked out a couple of reels and liked what I saw and heard about the new Orvis Mirage.

Over all I was disappointed in the presentation by the vendors. The tying booths were good as usual though.

I asked Scott about the rep. from Scott Fly Rods and he said he couldn't attend this time due to a surgery he had this week. But some of the booths that were there were not too elaborate. The guys with the reels; Redington, Sage, Tibor had a canopy over their booth which was a nice try but totally blacked out all the light from the ceiling and made the booth dark without a substitute.

Whens he going to post up the winners of the raffle? I'm holding off on ordering my sling until I see if I won the one at the show.
