    Just 2 weeks away. CJ's message needs a bump.

    This has become my favorite tying event. More relaxed than the Sommerset January show, and there are no distractions like buying gear or rushing off to see a presentation on time. Just a bunch of great people and tyers, mostly from SGM and neff, getting together at a time of year when fishing in earnest isn't too far away, but some serious cabin fever still needs to be confronted.

    It's special how the 2 fly shops with the most history from NY and NJ; Dettes and Shannons, get together on this one to promote a great event.

    Let's hope for good driving weather.

    So who's going?

    I'll be tying some of my latest patterns. The recipe calls for a jar of mikes garlic eggs

    Garlic eggs are whack. I've got a cure you can try that works a lot better.

    I'll see everyone there as usual. I missed it two years ago when we were restoring a mile of the Musky and we worked through the weekend. It's been growing in size each year.

    As a newbie whose interested..what exactly goes on? You can show up and just watch people tie? Is it informative or is it more of a social gathering where everyone knows everyone? Is it worth driving an hour + for? Will beetle be filming?

    It's absolutely worth going to TH. What exactly goes on? Picture a banquet hall full of talented tyers that you just wander up to, say hello, watch, ask questions, and learn. It's very relaxed and informal. You'll get a chance to meet some of the people who are on this board, and put a face with the name (for better or worse).

    Shannons fly shop is right across the street, and Califon is a nice little town.
    You can stop at the Long Valley Brew Pub on the way back and have a beer. What's not to like?
