It's update time - 2018 Events and Happenings

Hello winter -  cold enough to see your breath and depending on where you live, cold enough to see your thoughts  💭  while day dreaming and planning for the upcoming season.

Here, the news of what is going on in my world:

1) I will back teaching at the Wulff Fly Fishing School - fabulous fellow instructors in a setting that needs to be experienced - the best of the Catskills.

2) Super proud of being on the HMH Vise Pro Team. Made in Maine by some pretty cool people. Quality fly tying equipment. Come by the HMH booth at the Edison Fly Fishing Show - I'll be tying there Friday morning 9-12, January 26th.

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a Snap-cast!


Mother Nature's wonderful heat lamp made an appearance this past Sunday, making conditions doable for an Instructor's Continuing Education workshop at the Lancaster Show .
CE gatherings are the perfect cabin-fever fix, this particular one organized by pals Gary Kell MCI and Chris Haag CI, and sponsored by the Chesapeake Council.  My task, to help instructors clarify and filter the Spey/Two-hand soup that simmers out there on the interweb. The meat of the presentation was Q&A, with some Show-n-Tell and casting.
