I really enjoyed the Fling yesterday. It was great meeting Sighter and Trout R, and visiting with Rich, Erik, Splatek, Billy, Adam (Matchbox), Mr. Durniak, and many others. Sighter, thanks for taking those pix. A big thanks of course to Marcus, the BOD, and all the volunteers who made it happen.

Thanks to everyone who came to the Small Stream Presentation. I sure hope it will be beneficial in helping you find success on the small, wild, N Georgia water this year.

Thanks to the BOD for another great fling and looking forward to the fall one! Good to see some familiar faces and also meet some new faces as well. Enjoyed the seminars by Billy, Mark, and Steve thanks guys great job I learned alot to enhance my skillset. Also got to chat some with Mr.Jeff(Dredger) one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet, we talked trout and how much he thoroughly appreciated each and every one of us and our license purchases and I for one am glad to see the amount of fish and the size of some of the ones I've been catching lately due to the increase. He also gave me some tips on where and when to catch another species I've yet to hook but will next year so big thanks for the inside info. Officer Hall was also great to chat with and informed us that our increased license fees are being put to use with more wardens which is a plus in my book and he was able to nab a poacher before coming to fling himself!

It was great seeing you there! Ah those photos aren't the best, I'll do better at the Fall Fling. You and Steve were awesome, wish I came for the beginning. Very informational and well thought out. Now the only thing missing is for us to hit a small stream sometime to put those techniques to use!

Sighter we slayed a stream today, easily over hundred trout between the two of use (read as @Streamsidesam caught like 80-85 and I wrangled in like 15 on my hipster stick) was thinking next year on stream clinic.

Wow, Terry! It was SOOOOOO good to see you! You were the first person I ever met with NGTO at my very first Spring Fling when you led the Drag Free Drift. What a wonderful time!

We got there too late for the small stream presentation - kids were a little slow going first thing - but everyone had a great time. 10 minutes with Ed Chamberlain and it was all cherries on top (and chili) from there. The Chattahoochee presentation was great and we somehow ended up with a canoe too! Nice to meet a few of you. Thanks to everyone who put it together and volunteered.

Very much enjoyed the fling, especially the fly casting instructors, very informative and patient. Not a tier yet, but Steve's presentation info and teaching style was great for beginners and advanced alike.
Buck/Swamp, I hope I didn't cause any permanent ear damage from the excessive conversation. Looking forward to the fall fling
