Is anyone else going to the Symposium in a couple weeks. I have been to the January gig a few times, but never to this one. It sounds like a good way to get in the mood for some winter fly tying. I need to learn a lot and always need to fill some empty space in my material selection. For those who have been in the past, how is this event for picking up material? Is there a lot of stuff available? Decent price and selection?

Thanks, Rick

As far as material goes, there are more vendors at the January show, so more selection of materials. However, the show in a couple of weeks a bit more intimate and allows for more back and forth between the tiers and those attending. Some of the seminars also provide some good tips on tying.

Rick,
As Luzerne mentioned, there will be a bunch of us,you wont have any trouble locating the group :lol: .
This show is my favorite, as it is tying only, no booths with guys selling Belize fishing trips :roll:, just materials and lots of GOOD tyers that are real approachable. See you there, I hope! CJ

Although I can't make the show to participate, one attraction worth seeing there will be the presentation by Charlie Collins, Jim(?) Keogh and some others about 'Hackle'. Just thought I'd mention this.
