    As you would expect, Roger's presentation on salt water fly fishing on South Puget Sound at Orvis gathered a standing crowd. Great presentation Roger, thank you. I have a lot of fishing to do and learn from.

    Roger's presentation was first rate. He taught us many insightful and secretive things. The best being his favorite fishing spots ;-). Thanks Roger, and also to Orvis & Leland for a VERY helpful presentation.

    Let me add my thanks to the others who were fortunate to attend Roger's presentation. His new surface sand lance pattern looks killer. I'ld describe it to you, but then Roger would have to kill me.

    Great presentation, I added a lot more information to my "SRC data base" for use starting this week. Of course, I knew I was out of luck on the draw for one of Roger's flies. I had number 13... Met some of the Forum guys and a few others as well. Truly enjoyed myself. Would have stayed longer but it's my wedding anniversary dinner night and had higher priorities.

    We had a great time. I/We really appreciate Mr Stephens eagerness to share his hard earned knowledge.

    Now we just have to decide whether it's really practical to try to learn a new fishery like this from four hours away. I love a challenge. I love the fish, the beaches, the water, the smells of the salt. The distance, the press of people and the traffic....... not so much!

    Thanks again!

    Cheers..................Todd

    It was a very useful and informative presentation, and there was no need to take notes. Mr. Stephens's voluminous handouts took care of that. Thanks, Roger, and thanks to the Orvis fly shop for providing the facilities.

    I am glad that many of you have expressed your enjoyment of the presentation. It brings a smile to my face to know that the information was helpful. I apologize for being a little long winded at first and not hitting just the important points.

    Steve(Cabezon) and Karl:

    It was good talking to you both. I liked your posts razzing me about giving away fishing locations and keeping the Sand Lance Skater pattern under "wraps". Had a couple of good chuckles over that:D

    I wish I could have made it down for your presentation Roger but looking for work is my #1 priority right now. I'm guessing your skating lance is a variation of the skating tube I sent you last winter. The beaches have been producing really well here in the north sound. Along with some very large cutts we picked up some large dollies (18”+) on Saturday off one of my favorite beaches, but they were not all on the skater.
    I have been tying some other variations with this tube style (subsurface) but they haven’t been fished yet, you have probably second guessed me on this one already.
    Good fishing Roger

    I would have attended, but I was busy fishing.:clown:

    Based on reading Mr. Stephen's posts here for several years, I'm sure it was A+.
