Thursday night at Orvis, 2013-09-19
« on: September 20, 2013, 09:55:52 AM »
I got there a little early and started tying 5 minute redfish cracks.  We had a total of about 20 people show up.  I didn't take pictures, but I did see cameras out.

The casting games were a hit.  Since the gang had to stay inside we had the additional challenge of indoor obstacles.  I don't know who actually won, but there were a lot of good natured cheering, and jesting, as the game progressed.  Some of our beginers made some of the best casts, since they didn't have the bad habits to "unlearn."

Presenters of the evening were from an Orvis endorsed fishing lodge in the Bahamas.  I'll get the website for those guys when I get a few more minutes.  They were part of the group from the first moment. Only later did we learn that these were the presenters that evening.

They both are extremely enthused about the fishing, and were great at answering Golden's questions.

More later.

To fish, or not to fish?  What a stupid question!

Great recap, Puck!

If you haven't been to one of the Thursday night get togethers, I encourage you to come next Thursday. Fortunately, the event is over by 8 PM so you'll be able to get home in time to watch the season premier of "Elementary"!  ;D

It was an absolutely great time! 
 I met some wonderful people who love fly fishing like I do.  I am a newbie but felt at home!   I look forward to attending this Thursday. 

Thank you Puck for your advice and I look forward to talking to you about tying muddlers!
