Another successfull gathering I thought. Yeah the weather was miserable but it just made me more aware of the fact that I need a good waterproof jacket.
Nice to try a couple of different rods & lines. 5wt Scierra Ferox with s shoot line, Loomis IMX brought back fond memories, Hamish's blunderbuss, to name but a few BUT the soft and gentle feel of loveliness was trying the 9' 4wt Sage SP c/w last generation Wonderline.
The shoot out was fun with lots of grunting and fuss from the lesser techniquers like myself - it's a pride thing.
Mike, I was watching you earlier in the day and your back cast loops were as tight as a drum, even wedge like. I don't know if you were aware of it.
Great to catch up, just a pity that the weather took the edge off of things.
