    I'll be there Saturday w/ my cousin.

    Looking forward to hearing Gierach. Beyond that, I'll probably just wander around like an idiot, or go check out Underwater Ozzie's subaquatic hardcore fishporn extravaganza if that's in the offing.

    But the point of the show is not to get a deal on gear, or to book a trip, or to learn how to roll cast like Lefty Kreh. It's to fantasize about warm weather fishing for a day in the late-middle of winter, when things are especially bleak. And it's really good for that.

    I met underwater Ozzie a few months ago, what a nice, humble guy....he gave me two videos to watch, the filming was very cool, but the narration will put you to SLEEP!!!

    I concur with your assessment of Ozzie, and his narration.

    I love his films though, because they're basically impractical with regard to fishing. Just an amateur ichthyologist nerding out with waterproof cameras.

    Case in point. My favorite moment from my few visits to the Somerset show was two or three years ago during one of Ozzie's movies. He had inserted a waterproof camera on a boom down into the bottom of a plunge pool, to film these gorgeous brook trout that were hovering below the froth, facing downstream.

    It was an illustration, he said, of the fact that currents on the bottom of the river can be entirely different from those on the surface. The water was eddying vertically in this pool, appearing to flow flowing downstream on the surface while flowing upstream along the stream bed.

    "And this is quite typical," he said. "Of plunge pools. From the surface you see a turbulent downstream movement. But these fish are facing downstream, waiting for food to come back upstream on the bottom of the pool, propelled by the current."

    (one of five guys in the audience who is not asleep, who happens to be wearing Ass-Hat camo, raises his hand)

    "How would you achieve a natural drift with a nymph under these conditions?"

    Ozzie looked at him for a moment like he'd never thought about this.

    "Oh, you are never going to catch these fish."

    throw the damn nymph in the plunge. let your line slack and you will catch those fish...I have done it and it has worked...wonder why he said that.......The Ass-Hat camo probably threw him off......

    Re: Somerset 2015 in just a few weeks.

    I would throw on a red wiggler with a red and white bogger and catch fish all day. I dont know if i will be going, 2 hours each way for me and it take me under two hours to see everything.

    To look good is to fish good

    I will throw a few blockbusters down there and get those fuckin fish. If you tell me I will never catch those fish, then in immortal words of the great Barney Stinson, "challenge accepted!".

    Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.
