Spent part of yesterday up in Freeport, Maine at the LL Bean Spring Fishing Show. The folks at Bean were wonderful hosts. Such luminaries as Joan Wulff, Bob Popovics, Stu Apte, Dave Klausmeyer, Mike Martinek and others were on hand to share their knowledge and skills. I had a fun day staffing the Federation of Fly Fishers table with George Holmes. We had a number of interested people stop by to get the lowdown on the FFF. There were also several very talented and eager young fly tyers. As far as I am concerned, the future of fly tying and angling look brighter when we can share our knowledge with the next generation.
