Let me know as it would be cool to meet up! :huh: thanks ~Kristi WESTERN CANADIAN FLY FISHING EXPO WORKSHOP PASS GIVEAWAY 1. Two passes to "Explore the Ritual of Building Fly Rods" - Host: Geoff Pieroway 2. Two passes to "Tropical Temptations" - Host: Terry Johnson About the Workshops "Explore the Ritual of Building Fly Rods" with Geoff Pieroway Workshop time: January 29th, 2012 (9:30am - 11:30am) Sponsored by: Pieroway Fly Rods This workshop is not just about rod assembly. Instead it looks deeply into how builders are using lathes to make truly customized reel seats and cork handles from exotic turning blocks and individual cork rings. During this two-hour session we'll skip over the science of graphite blanks and instead hone in on the artistry of constructing your own components to produce a completed personalized fly rod. Geoff will show you how to turn reel seat inserts, assemble unique checkerboard handles, wrap guides, inlay feathers & weaves and demonstrate how to produce that 'factory epoxy finish'. Armed with this knowledge he'll then discuss the repair and refurbishment of fly rods so that you can either get your favorite stick back in action or retire it to your wall of fame. "Tropical Temptations" with Terry Johnson Workshop time: January 28th, 2012 (2:30pm - 4:30pm) Sponsored by: Fish Tales Fly Shop Join Terry for this workshop focused on baitfish, crab, and shrimp patterns including his "10 x 10" and other personal favorites. Terry's a regular trip leader on fly fishing excursions to Cuba and has recently returned from Christmas Island.

This draw is for BOTH sets of tickets. -------------------- "There is an indescribable something about a fly dressed by an expert amateur who is a practical salmon fisherman which the fly dressed by a non-angling professional frequently lacks." -T.E.
