|Tom Hazelton of Scientific Anglers casting a Gray Wolf|
So let's have some coffee. The big news was the show, but there will be plenty of time for that later on. I did get out and fish Wednesday night, despite the need to prepare for the show. After the big storm last weekend and then heavy rains early in the week the rivers were high and dirty, but conditions were perfect and I hooked up on two fish that took me to the cleaners. The first was a yard long, chrome bright and unstoppable. Cool stuff. The weather took a turn for the nasty by Friday, and I had to leave for the Expo in a ground blizzard. It didn't take too long to drive out of it, but for awhile it was scary.

Extra Extra!! Interviews, and Giveaways.....
Starting this week I'll have a series of interviews and several giveaways stemming from this show. I want to thank Lou Burhart, Cameron Mortenson, Mike Schmidt, Eric Stroup, April Vokey, Shane Gray, Joe Sprys, and Kelly Neuman for allowing me to intrude on their show time and for sharing something of themselves. Several interviewees have donated swag, books, flies, and a half-dozen streamers and a fly box to give away in conjunction with their interviews. These are fantastic interviews of good people. Two are rod builders, several are authors, several are fly tyers, and several are professional guides (there's some overlap in skill sets).

To whom it may concern, I will post links with all the interviews I share, but this post was too target rich to do that. My apologies to the offended.
Well, I really screwed up this morning- Daylight Savings Time kicked in this weekend, but because I was gone, I forgot to reset my clocks at home and got up a glorious hour late- good for the body, bad for the career. I had more to say, but this will have to do. I'll be posting a children's book review this evening, so parents- look for that, then look for my interview with Cameron by Wednesday. I've got lots of cool stuff coming up. If you were at the show, I'm going to put together a "photo album" to share tomorrow or Thursday.
Okay- I absolutely have to run out the door this second, so stay tuned, have a great week, and spend some time on the water if you can.
Let's get after it.....
