It was great to see John, Todd, Dave, Dean, Kevin, Rich, John, and the others who I forgot to get the names of.
You toss a nice long belly line even if it was your first time with them.
As always, it was a pleasure to spend time with you and talk to you about the rods. That 15' 3-piece is very nice and nearly effortless to cast, and it works well with everything from short lines to the long bellies. The 13'6" MKS is also a very nice shorter stick, which some others have commented on. That experimental 6/7 steelhead/salmon 13' rod you had along was a pleasant surprise.
Brian and Vinnie,
You guys are well on the way to being converted to the longer rods! Just think how good that 16'er is going to be after the adjustments to it are made.
As usual, it was good to visit with and cast along with Brian, Aaron, and Leroy.
As usual, the time spent visiting with you was well spent. You, Mike, and Brian helped Bob create a great rod in the MKS 13'6" The smoked salmon and peat water was the perfect end for the day.
