    Thursthouse,
    Like Chuck wrote, please go! Its not some snooty, clicky thing where you wander in and everyone stares, these guys are used to the shows, interacting with folks and showing there talent in front of newcomers. There are guys tying everything, from bass bugs to midges, salmon flies and saltwater. Of course you can tie too, in fact its encouraged! Last year because of the past years attendance, the firehouse decided to open their kitchen and serve lunch right on premises so you don't have to leave. Burgers and dogs, soda and water, its great!

    Looking forward to seeing the guys and meeting some new ones. CJ

    Re: SGM fly tying event Califon NJ

    This just in... someone at the SGM / Shannon's event will be going home with a new custom fly rod. A 10ft,3wt-4pc, with custom grip and wraps, metallic green blank and silver accents, I have used the sister to this rod all last year and love it. Primarily used for nymph fishing but casts dry's and wets with ease.

    Not sure how they plan on offering it up, whether by raffle or door prize, but it will be there for the taking.







    Good luck, CJ

    Had a good time attending the SMG for the first time with my boys this weekend. It was nice to put some faces to the names on here.

    Who got to take that rod home?

    It was a pleasure meeting you sunsignarcher! Your boys look like they got an eyefull over there too!

    Here is a link to Joes site where you can read a little more about it...

    Sparse Grey Matter • View topic - SGM/Shannons Fest Sunday 23rd

    Rick Fischer won the rod, he was pretty excited to hear his name called!

    To everyone that came by Shannon's and Dette's thank you, turnouts like this ensure another event next year. CJ
