Newaygo Clave Thanks

Just got in and settled from the Muskegon river Clave, and wanted to say thanks to all of the pro's on hand with their seemingly unlimited knowledge. I especially liked the tube tying this afternoon by Tony. Also thanks to Mojo-65 for the premium accomadations.


Hope to see everybody next year or sooner.

Thanks

Thanks to Doug for your organization and hospitality. To Tony, Andy and Neil for the demos and advice. To Smolt for your humor and to all the casters for a good couple of days and all the tackle people for being there and Sage for lunch on Saturday. Wish I could have been there on Sunday.

Great time-I plan to be there next year!

Ditto...

Thanks to Doug for getting this thing off the ground. Thanks to Andy, Tony, and Neil for the outstanding demos. Now if I can just get Tony's distance with Andy's smoothness and ease I'll be all set! Thanks to Glen Blackwood of Great Lakes Fly Shop, Todd Currell of Cortland, Brian Pitser from Sage, and to Rambo for setting up the fly swap. It was a great weekend and fun to be a part of.

Thanks to all!

There is not much that can be added to what has already been said. I do, however, want to add my sincere thanks and appreciation to all involved in making the clave the real success it was. IMHO, it was the best clave yet. I am looking forward to seeing everyone again in October in Canada, and for those of you who don't make it to Canada, next Spring in the Midwest.

Hi,

Yes, a big thanks to all that made this event a success.

Doug, pulling it all together and keeping the paparazzi away.

Andy, great practical teaching and patience.

Neil, showing us GL folks a Skagit cast.

Toni, very interesting sunk work and great fly tying.

All of the graphite suppliers, Hardy, Loop, Sage, Scott, Meiser, Loomis, Guideline (we had all styles covered from 11'6" to 17')

Rambo, good fly swap, all the flies I recieved had nice wrapped heads (even Jamey's )

Smolt, thanks for drawing my ticket in the raffle.

And to everyone else who helped pull this off.

THANK YOU,

Gary
