Best ever Sandy Clave? I dunno.
The food was fantastic, and the gear was great. However, I'm doing something different every year, so I can't tell. Unfortunately, I didn't see a single presentation this year. I welcomed people and cast lots of rods, with Nextcast lines, CND lines, and my own line to take the line changes out of the equation when comparing rods. LOTS of rods I really liked, headed by the Meisers, Andersons, and Burkies. For my purpose, to upgrade my most-used rod without changing lines (yet), the top choice was the Burkheimer 7141. There were other rods I liked even more, but none that fit my current want quite so well.
The best part, of course, was seeing lots of friends.
The bad part? I still haven't met many of the posters on this site that attended.
The worst part? I missed seeing Aaron, Brian S., and others. No Dana, either.
But Mark, Patty, Bob, Tilda, and all the others certainly made it another great weekend. The NSSC breakfasts were great, and got people there early on Saturday because of the breakfast. The lunches and dinner were great, great.
Oh, yeah...the worst, worst part was that Sunday was Mothers Day. The Sunday crowd reflected that mistake.
Fortunately I had a pass to attend both days!
