Was nice to see some new faces, and always a pleasure seeing the old ones. Thanks for those of you who stopped by to BS a bit and drop off donations for the soldiers. Truly do appreciate it. Nice thing, we just stood up another program in Oregon, and most of the donated materials and rods/reels/gear will be heading directly to that program. I would like to add one very special THANK YOU! I don't think he's on this board, or even visits it. But I'm sure some of you (especially those who tie full dressed salmon flies) will know him. Tak, who makes his own hooks and then builds the most gorgeous full dressed Atlantics on them, did an amazing thing for PHWFF. He donated 100% of all his sales of his fly hooks to us. Was truly amazing, and can honestly say it was a record weekend for us (between donated gear and monies). Can't thank him enough, he was so generous. Wonderful man. I even bought a few of his hooks myself. Was a wonderful weekend, just wish the Yakima cooperated for us, and that our backup wasn't so damned crowded either. But was nice to get home early and rest a bit.
