    re: SOOOO what did you get at the show

    I picked up 3 Whiting Bronze necks, some mylar, beads, tinsel, lots of micro v-rib for tying larva.

    I also picked up 1 hand tied bass bug by a guy I would certainly call a master at the art of spinning deer hair. The tyer is Pat Cohen and his patterns are over the top! The attached photo is a collection of patterns called "Punk Rockers". The bug in upper right hand is the one I purchased.

    FYI, I'm looking to purchase a display case that will allow me to display the bug so all 4 sides are visible. If you're familiar with a display case like that please letClick image for larger version.

    i do think you're in for great disappointment if you're heading to the southern state of georgia expecting to get in to a 10 lb. brown in february. sure would have liked to hear that guide(s) try to pitch that sale, though.

    re: SOOOO what did you get at the show

    So at the show I bought the following items:

    1) 4 wet fly capes from Collins, THey were quality with some really great color at $5.00 a piece.

    2) $ 36.00 worth of qaulity 4 pack duck quills by Spirit River. Mike Hogue (Badger Creek Fly Fishing) told me when I came buy what he had. I went through them and picked out the best ones and left a small amount of the rest.

    3) A quality Hares Mask from Mike Hogue

    4) A new Orivis 2 piece 8.6 ft 5 weight mid flex TLS Power Matrix fly rod for $180 (Great rod for casting wet flies). The rod was on sale for $199 and I talked him down a little more because the cork on the rod was not covered but in great shape and that I would also buy a reel from him for this rod.

    5) Orvis Battenkill Bar Stock Reel BBS II for $80

    6) Renewed two year subscriptions to Fly Tyer & Fly Fishing and Fly Tying Journal Magazine. Got a nice hat and a decent shirt I can use for camping.

    7) Renewed my Catskill Fly Tyers Guild Membership

    8) Bought and Donated a HMH Spartan Vise for $170 to the Catskill Fly Tyers Guild. This donation helps the club raise money by raffling off items like this at shows and major events. Who wouldn't want to take a $5.00 chance on a new vise like this.

    The show was pleasent, fun and easy going on Friday. It was a little weird for me not tying in the show and having to pay $15.00 to get in. Next year I will be back in the show on tyers row, and just tye, talk to people and try and break away from the table to see the show for awhile. Any way I felt the show was better than last years. Had a chance to meet DC, AKSKIM (Dennis) and enjoyed hanging and speak ing with my fellow Guild Brothers. My favorite person who I enjoyed immensely talking to and thought he was one heck of a nice guy in person was Davy Wotton. I always enjoyed corresponding with him on Arron Jasper's web site but truly enjoyed speaking with him in person.

    re: SOOOO what did you get at the show

    I purchased two necks, a grizzly and brown from Collins Farms. The necks have very nice hackles for $10.00 each. I found to be a great deal. I do not know how you can make a profit selling a quality neck for 10 bucks. It costs more then that to feed the chicken but who is complaining. Overall I found it to be a great deal. As you all know I am a cheep bastard. I truly do not like parting with my money. Money talks it seems to be the case that mine always says goodbye. But I did part with more cash then I wanted to. I found Marc Petitjean MP tying system to be so far ahead of the curve on innovation in tying and his techniques on the use of CDC to be so different and simple .I was amazed on what you can achieve. The system was a little pricey but I was impressed. I can not wait to try it out. I did go to a few of the free seminars and I found them to be a bit novice. Did anyone else get the same impression? But overall I had a great time at the show and it was well worth it.

    re: SOOOO what did you get at the show

    I purchased some feathers from Charlie Collins, some ISO sparkle dubbing, renewed magazines, raffle tickets, hooks, 400 tungsten beads, a turtle shaped fly box, AJ's dvd, and my favorite item of the show......a hot pink magnetic nipper/zinger combo!
    My girlie girl senses went on overload!
    Oh, and I won a Brodin ghost net....not too shabby!

    Well if he booked the trip through the guide I am thinking of he will have a pretty good shot at a trophy brown or rainbow. There are a few streams holding some very large trout in North Georgia. Heck you can catch a 10lb Brown on the Chattahoochee river on the outskirts of Atlanta with a little luck. The Soque is the river I am thinking of. There are 30 inch fish in that river for sure.
