My brother and I attended for both days and learned a bunch and had a great time. Kaufmann's and the rod reps were gracious with their knowledge, rods and food. I am already looking forward to next year. My favorite rod of the day was a Winston 13 foot Boron IIx 8/9. It was a dream to cast. But in all honesty, every rod that I used was a joy to cast. Now, I just need to work 3 jobs and win the lottery to fill my quiver with all of the rods I am drooling over! The highlight of the experience was a take that my brother had while demoing a rod with a skagit head and the famous dehooked yarn fly. Unfortunately, the fish released after 3-4 tuds. Needless to say, he was a little suprised.
