i would like to add two things: first that this will be everyone's/anyone's event, open to all, reps, instructors, manufacturers, shops whatever. Gillie has gotten it started but everyone is certainly welcome to promote or participate and in fact encouraged to do so and make it a great event.
second Rick Kustich's demo will be on fishing the two handed rod as opposed to just casting. techniques for the GL, flies, weight, lines and all the rest. i'm sure there will be plenty of casting demo's and we want to make it a bit more instructional also. i will get him to sign up and give a full account after the hendrickson's on the big "D" this weekend.
if anyone else has any other ideas feel free to post them here.
support your local tyers and the shops that support them
