How did I miss this? Who's going? Who's camping?

There's an actual longbelly demo in the Midwest. This is something everybody needs to see. You WILL learn something.

Camping

Jamey, I'm in. It's your turn this time to get the camp site.

Jon

Two handed rods, swung flies, bird dogs and the 45th parallel. That's my happy place.

TCX 10150-4 and/or TCX 9140-4

I have a favour to ask...

I look forward to coming to the Clave in two weeks and was wondering if anyone can bring long Sage TCX with them to the clave?

I'd be most appreciative if someone can let me try their TCX 10150-4 and/or TCX 9140-4 for maybe 20 minutes.. I will have my own lines (UniSpey, PowerSpey and Snowbee 2D.)

Thanks -

Jimmy

Just over a week

It's getting close, the i's are dotted, a few t's to cross. The pig is approaching it's last supper, the mugs arrived with only two casualties... I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone again. It's a little to soon to call the weather, but I will update mid next week.

Jimmy, I have a 15 footer that you can borrow.
