I know there will be a number of high quality presentations of the San Francisco extravaganza - but I couldn't wait. So here are a few of my shots.

I start with a look at the Golden Gate Casting Club itself - awesome...

The inside of the Clubhouse was also way cool.

No world class event would be complete without the Scandinavian Master himself - Goran Anderson.

Just because it was a bunch of fisherman it doesn't mean that fashion was missing. Far from it! The Scots - Bill Drury on the left and Ian Gordon to the right wowed the crowd. Especially when a rogue puff of wind "snuck up behind Ian! :whoa:

Then the Syrstad twins from Norway demonstrated "river fashion" - as well as some monstrous shooting head casts - with outrageously narrow loops.

Now for a few shots of the venue and some of the participants - both outstanding :smokin:

Note the film crew in the next couple of shots. They are making a DVD that will be available through the Forum - it will be good!

And finally, here is the future of the sport. He may be looking for bass right now, but I'm sure it won't be too long before a flyrod is his hands. :hehe:

Jacob,

I do believe they were using Loomis rods, a model only available in Europe.
