    Default This sounds awesome.

    Man I wish I could attend. I have determined I am alergic to a right hook. I was at a woodturning symoposium all weekend. I thinks thats what I would recieve if approached the Signifigant Other on this......lol Maybe I will try to convince her that I only want to attend for her benifit? I have a few hours to work on this.

    Well I was excited to get a chance to talk fishing and about my area. Had notes and thought I had a good layout and presentation. The introduction was great and Mark Huber worked hard to make me look good. I started out great with a short BIO then they turned down the lights and I had relied too much on the notes I couldn't see. Felt like I was having an out of body expierence watching me slowly sink in quicksand. After a short stuggle with trying to remember the points I wanted to make some questions asked and I was pulled from the mire.

    The crowd was gracious and I think it finished well, no tomatoes or other such rotten fruit. Big thanks for the oportunity to present to Alaska Fly Fisher's Association. I was informed that it is not AK fed of flyfishers, sorry about that folks.

    This is a great association and do some great things for our awesome sport and would like to encourage other to join and lend support.

    Highpockets,
    If you made it great and sorry I didn't have a chance to say hi. Keep the home frontlines smooth always. Looking forward to meeting you at the rodbuilding meeting.

    Blue Moosie,
    Staying south is right, I would love the oportunity to come up and share with the Midnight Sun club or other entity as well, you got any input there? I have presented there many years ago and have a place to stay so can make it happen fi we can.

    Default :-) Glad it turned out well

    I will get with the Mid Night Sun guys and Bill B. and see what can be done about getting in the mix. I am sure they would love to have a presentation. Give me a couple of days and beware.

    :-)
