The show has been very very busy this year. On Friday a number of members, including myself... stayed until up to a half hour after close to help kids tye flies. If you haven't been down yet, come check it out.

 

K... back to hockey game (Flames Vs Oiler)... bed.. and back at it tommorow. Will get to try out my new rotary vise next week and flyrod on the Bow in a few weeks.

 

There are some super deals down at the show indeed. Last day on Sunday... quick... like a bunny... check it out.

That game sucked! BIG TIME!

 

The Refs real screwed that one up...Oilers lost all momentum after that.

 

:curse:

 

I thought the oilers looked not bad, Kippersoff save the day again....

Congrats to SnowRolf (Jim) on winning the Sage rod int he TUC bucket raffle too. As well Nemo's "lady" won the fish smoker.

 

Thanks to all the members who came out and supported this event, and helped with the tying. Also thanks to Nemo whom stood outside by the Tacoma selling tickets on it to raise some hefty funds for the NLFTF.

 

Smart laddy indeed. :)
