Great time had by all, at least the folks I spoke to. I haven't been on a Friday due to the work thingy, but I think this one was bigger than last year's show. Got to meet a lot of our members, and for me I got to finally meet two of our long time members that tend to be more legend, myth - John Kies and Narcodog (Bob Kern). Good to meet you both....

Put next years show on your "must see" calendar, go and have fun - and always remember to thank our sponsors...

I just assumed it was some NGTO member so appreciative that he felt a need to give Baldea a peck on the cheek.

Thumbs up

The raffle drawing for the full day unguided trip to Unicoi Outfitter's Nacoochee Bend was held at the end of the show yesterday. The winner was John Kelly. John was contacted yesterday and is scheduled to pick up his certificate.

He was tickled.

Thank You to all who participated. It was a great show.

I was there on Friday with all of the other retired guys. Sorry that I missed you.

Enjoyed the show. Really cool seminars and loved being able to check out all the cool toys (one of those Hardy Duchess reels almost followed me home).

Went total fanboy meeting Tim Flagler from Tightline Productions fly tying videos.

Great show, even if I did have to end it by talking to RScott mooching in the Chota booth 😝

Flagler was cool, I harassed him a good 30 minutes, picked up some good tips and heard some interesting stories. His wife Joan was working the angling bookstore, really nice and made change for me when I needed it for the booth. There was this Little (last name) kid next to him with some of the most realistic looking flys Iíve seen, that I thought he dipped actually flies in wax.

Tradd.
Very well known in the fly tying circuit. He also just recently won a Flymen Fishing Company tying contest with an articulated pattern.

Default Thanks!

Great show this year! Thanks to all who volunteered. I enjoyed meeting & chatting with Uncle Jesse & Swamp Angel. Also spent decent amount of time with Kent Edmonds picking his brain about shoal bass. Really cool guy!

Got to attend several seminars and meet with Landon Mayer. He signed my book too at the authors table.
