So I stopped by the fly shop last night for a couple of items. The boys were a blur as they were packing up stuff for the Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo in Chicago. We are all hoping for a fun and successful weekend. Last year we got hit with a small snow storm over Friday night through Saturday morning. Looks like the forcast for this weekend is just cold and cloudy, I can deal with that.
The crew members "representing" our club, will be Mother Feiker, Andy, Anderson, and myself. We'll be taking off tomorrow after work and I'm really hoping for easy traffic. At this point, it sounds like our main duties to help Tom Helgeson out at Chicago expo will be setting up and running the "Fly tying Theater" and all the Audio/Video stuff that goes along with it, possible assisting with the local fly Tying group(s) with the "Teach a kid to tie a Fly" program (I'll be leaving that for the others who know how to talk short-people speak), and making sure that the Audio/Video stuff works for each of the featured presenters as they swap in their own equipment.
I'd like to give a shout out to my pops, who just had knee surgery yesterday and sounds like things went ok. I wish him a speedy recovery!
